The problem of energy exchange between two electro-magnetic modes of different frequencies and an acoustic mode is formulated and solved. The results of the quantum mechanical analysis are also analyzed in classical terms and are found to be consistent with the theory for parametric interactions. Specific cases treated include: parametric amplification of light, stimulated Brillouin scattering, and frequency conversion.
