Nonexponential decay of an ensemble of first-order processes are modeled assuming distributions of rate-controlling parameters to be responsible for dispersive kinetics. Some problems of deriving microscopic properties from experimental decay data are illustrated focusing on hole-burning kinetics on the basis of the two-level system model. This approach is compared with reasonings leading to the logarithmic decay law.
