Random matrix theory is used to model a two-level quantum system driven by a laser and coupled to a reservoir with N degrees of freedom in both Markovian and non-Markovian regimes. Decoherence is naturally included in this model. The effect of reservoir dimension and coupling strength between the system and reservoir is explored.
