The propagation of an extremely short (one cycle long) pulse of an electromagnetic field in a medium whose resonant transition is characterized by both diagonal and off-diagonal matrix elements of the dipole-moment operator is considered theoretically. The set of Maxwell-Bloch equations without the approximation of the slowly varying envelopes is used. Two types of solutions of this set, which are found describing the steady-state propagation of an electromagnetic pulse in such a medium.
