There are several motivations, both physical and mathematical to pursue the construction of multi-photon squeezed states. Besides describing many photon processes which are more and more interesting from the point of view of quantum optics, they lead to non-Gaussian vawepackets which are of great relevance for other branches of physics as well (for instance the theory of phase transitions or the description of certain collective effects in nuclei). Moreover, since in several cases higher order moments can be independently squeezed, such states depend very often on a larger number of parameters and a finer tuning of the related probability distributions can be achieved.
