The semiclassical theory of a ring laser gyro is reviewed including discussion of the Sagnac effect, mode coupling, mode locking, dither, bias techniques, role of isotopes, and gaseous laser media. In addition a fully quantized theory for media with nonmoving atoms is used to examine the stability of unidirectional operation.
