We investigate the quantum statistics of three time-dependent coupled oscillators in the presence of multiphoton processes. The system is connected with the two-atom multiphoton Tavis–Cummings model. The solution of the Heisenberg equations of the motion is obtained in a compact form. We assume that the modes are initially prepared in coherent states, and we discuss nonclassical phenomena (squeezing and sub-Poissonian behavior). Further, we examine the joint quasi-distribution functions as well as photon-number distribution and its factorial moments. The system has shown that the nonclassical effect is apparent in compound modes ( 1 , 3 ) and ( 2 , 3 ) . Moreover, the superstructure phenomenon is observed when the photon transition is increased.
