Paper Abstract

This work is devoted to the description of the interaction between n-level atom and a large dissipative system (heat bath). SU(n)-group coherent states as useful and convenient basis are employed. Fokker-Planck-like equations for (rho) - symbol of reduced density matrix taking into account possible squeezed fluctuations of heat bath are derived. New formulas for correlators of the transition operators between levels of system are obtained and influence of squeezing on the shape of radiation lines is discussed.
