# Decay of the polarization field in a Maxwell Bloch system

• The Maxwell-Bloch equations describing the propagation of electromagnetic waves in a gas of quantum mechanical systems with two energy levels is investigated. The system under consideration consists of a generally nonlinear second order system of differential equations for the dielectrical polarization and the density coupled with Maxwell's equations for the electromagnetic field. The goal is to show decay of the polarization field for $t\rightarrow\infty$.
