The transient response of ions upon sudden creation or removal of a local, external charge in a one-component Coulomb lattice gas is investigated by Monte Carlo simulations. Our model can be regarded as a simplified description of solvation dynamics processes in electrolyte systems. Effects of the nonlinearity of the relaxation are pointed out and are contrasted with predictions from linear (Debye-Hückel and Debye-Falkenhagen) theories.
