Abstract

The accuracy of the group-velocity description of dispersive pulse propagation in a double-resonance Lorentz model dielectric is shown to decrease monotonically as the propagation distance increases, whereas the accuracy of the asymptotic description increases monotonically as the propagation distance increases above a single absorption depth in the medium at the pulse carrier frequency.
