Abstract

We present numerical simulations of nonlinear pulse propagation in air whereby an initial pulse is formed, absorbed by plasma generation, and subsequently replenished by power from the trailing edge of the pulse. This process can occur more than once for high-power input pulses and produce the illusion of long-distance propagation of one self-guided pulse.
