A dressed-state rate-equation model is used to describe the Autler-Townes effect
that is produced by a resonant 100% amplitude-modulated field driving a two-level resonance.
The purpose of using this model is to give an intuitive interpretation of the rather
complex absorption spectra produced when a weak probe field couples this strongly
driven transition to a third atomic state. We obtain analytic expressions for
the positions, strengths and, widths of the components of the absorption spectra
which are in excellent agreement with experimentally obtained spectra presented in
the accompanying paper
[S. Papademetriou, following paper,
Phys. Rev. A 53, 997 (1996)].
