An alternative way of reconstructing a function from its Laplace transform using the Widder inversion method was shown to be useful in treating some problems of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. As an example of a successful application of the method, a decay was investigated of the excited atomic state in a simple, but nonetheless physically relevant, model featuring a two-level atom interacting with a continuum of field modes.
