Abstract: We give a very simple proof of the fact that the Lorenz equations and the Maxwell-Bloch equations do not have a polynomial flow. We also give an algorithm to decide if a two-dimensional vector field over $ \mathbb{R}$ has a polynomial flow and how to compute the solutions (in case the vector field has a polynomial flow).
