Abstract / Description:The formation of breakdown pattern on an insulating surface
under the influence of a transverse magnetic field is
theoretically investigated. We, have generalized the Dielectric
Breakdown Model (DBM) and random walker model for the case of
external magnetic field. It is shown that fractal
dimensionality of the discharge saturates with magnetic fields.
It is conjectured that nonlinear current interaction is
responsible for the experimentally observed "spider-legs" like
streamer patterns.
