Paper Abstract

Various models of filamentation in air are presented and the remaining theoretical challenges are pointed out. Means to extend the range of filaments are reviewed and proposed. Filaments offer promise of guiding electrical discharges over large gaps. Experiments of UV filament induced discharge are presented.
