I describe how exactly the intracavity fields in a dual-recycling cavity build up their power before achieving a steady-state value. The analysis is restricted to interferometers with lossless mirrors and a beam splitter. The complete series representation of intracavity lights at any stage of evolution in a nonsteady state is presented.
