This chapter presents an overview of ideas of the nonequilibrium state of matter that emerged in the last thirty years of the 20th century, which are surprisingly similar to the schemes for laser pumping. Topics discussed include amplification under non-low thermal equilibrium (LTE) conditions, astrophysical predecessors of the laser, and manifestation of laser action under astrophysical conditions.

Keywords:   matter, nonequilibrium state, amplification, laser action
