Onset of treelike patterns in negative streamers.

Abstract

We present analytical and numerical studies of the initial stage of the branching process based on an interface dynamics streamer model in the fully three-dimensional case. This model follows from fundamental considerations on charge production by impact ionization and balance laws, and leads to an equation for the evolution of the interface between ionized… (More)
