  • Gives an overview of the phenomena underlying the mechanism of spark discharge
  • Classifies and generalizes experimental and theoretical models and gives a general theory of the process
  • Presents physically substantiated methods to solve problems in high-voltage engineering and lighting
  • Contains original illustrative material that helps the reader understand the details of the space-time pattern of the process and important relations between spark parameters
  • Considers experimental methods and warns against common misunderstandings
  • Summary

    Spark Discharge is a first-of-its-kind text, providing a comprehensive and systematic description of the spark breakdown of long gas gaps. It discusses the nature of a long spark, physical peculiarities of relevant gas discharge processes, methods and results of experimental studies, and analytical and numerical models. The most important applications in high-voltage engineering are covered in a single volume.
    The straightforward presentation of complicated materials, the deep insight into the nature of the processes, and the simplified mathematical descriptions of the phenomena, make Spark Discharge an excellent textbook for students and an indispensable reference for researchers, physicists, and engineers.
