On an example of solid-state diode-pumped lasers it has been demonstrated the necessity to use spatially distributed laser model for simulation of various modes of operation (e.g., cw, Q-switch, Q-switched mode-lock) for such lasers. Simulation of such system's pecularities as nonuniformity of the pump, existence of saturable absorber elements as well as large time delay feedback are also discussed.
