Краткий обзор статьи: We study the propagation of radiation through a disordered waveguide with a complex dielectric constant $epsilon$, and show that dual systems, which differ only in the sign of the imaginary part of $epsilon$, have the same localization length. Paradoxically, absorption and stimulated emission of radiation suppress the transmittance of the waveguide in the same way.
