Experimental and theoretical investigations of the initial stage of the formation of a pulsed volume discharge between two plane electrodes in argon at atmospheric pressure under conditions of inhomogeneous preionization are reported. The experimental results of the propagation velocity of an ionization wave are compared with the obtained value from the numerical simulation. The features of the development of ionization waves in atmospheric-pressure argon are studied.
