In the present paper we study the dynamics of one-electron atoms in the presence of both a linearly polarized squeezed vacuum and a magnetic field along the polarization vector of the photonic field. We adopt the dipole approximation and approach the problem via path integral methods. After integrating over the light variables for certain initial and final squeezed vacuum states we treat the path integral over the spatial variables via Monte-Carlo methods. As an application we calculate the survival probability of the ground state of a one-electron atom for various values of the magnetic field.
