In this article we show that the logistic function can be exploited to describe the evolution of free-electron-laser oscillators with the inclusion of lethargy, cavity tuning effects, etc. It is also proved that it offers a useful tool to gain a deeper understanding of the time dependence on the spectral features of the optical packet. © 1998 American Institute of Physics.
