The coupled dynamics of free carriers and excitons after non-resonant excitation with short laser pulses is investigated by means of an Ensemble Monte Carlo method which includes phonon-assisted formation and dissociation of free excitons. Simulations for bulk GaAs reveal that excitonic binding under participation of LO phonons is a very fast and effective process. The temporal rise of exciton luminescence depends on the particular excitation conditions and is determined by all interaction mechanisms in the system.
