Moving-boundary approximation for curved streamer ionization fronts: Numerical tests

By F. Brau, A. Luque, B. Davidovitch and U.M. Ebert


Recently a moving boundary approximation for the minimal model for negative streamer ionization fronts was extended with effects due to front curvature; this was done through a systematic solvability analysis. A central prediction of this analysis is the existence of a nonvanishing electric field in the streamer interior, whose value is proportional to the front curvature. In this paper we compare this result and other predictions of the solvability analysis with numerical simulations of the minimal model
