The pulse propagation in free electron lasers is treated analytically. A general gain formula including finite pulse effects, high gain corrections, inhomogeneous broadening contributions and the detuning parameter is derived. It is shown that it contains, as particular cases, the already known gain parametrization formulae. © 1996 American Institute of Physics.
