Wepresenta calculationof the shotnoiseto be usedas initial conditionfor the electron-beamphase-variablesin numerical
simulationsofthe free-electronlaser.
Numerical integration of the free-electron laser
equations usually starts with a small arbitrary value
of input field, to allow the FEL instability to show
itself. This procedure fails to reproduce the start-up
of the real laser and the time or distance to satura-
tion will depend on the arbitrary initial value. The
procedure is obviously valid only for initial field-val-
ues larger than the random fluctuations in the real
system; even if the level of these fluctuations is used
