Abstract : Several previous works -1-3- made in the afterglow of helium, neon and argon positive column show out that in the initial period of the plasma decay, when the quantity of the excited atoms and charged particles has not yet been substantially decreased, the electron energy distribution function EEDF may substantially deviate from the Maxwellian distribution function in the high energy region : 1. The fast electrons number could be many orders higher than in a Maxwellian distribution with the temperature of the main group of electrons Te. 2.This number decreases in time much more slowly than usually presumed.
