Propagation of an amplifying pulse in a twolevel medium
Zakharov V. E.
Inverseproblem equations, which describe the propagation of an amplifying wave pulse in a medium with an inverse population, are constructed. A selfsimilar solution, which describes the propagation of such a pulse, is obtained and interpreted in terms of the inverse problem. A selfsimilar solution describes the compression of an amplifying pulse.
