Avalanche-to-Streamer Transition in Particle Simulations

  author={Chao Li and U. Ebert and W. Brok},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science},
The avalanche-to-streamer transition is studied and illustrated in a particle model. The results are similar to those of fluid models. However, when superparticles are introduced, numerical artifacts become visible. This underscores the need of models that are hybrid in space.
