The values of the radii of the sphere enclosing an ensemble of two-level atoms corresponding to metastable states in the cooperative emission are computed. The dynamics of these states and, in particular, the delay in the maximum of the emission intensity are given for the different orders of the critical radii. 1 The article is published in the original.
