After an introduction of the theoretical tools required for the description of open quantum systems, this course will provide an overview of the possibilities offered by optomechanical systems in the generation of nonclassical states. The general theoretical description of these phenomena is combined with the discussion of some of the recent experimental achievements in the field.
