Abstract : The Final Technical Report summarizes the results of work performed with partial financial support of AOARD AFOSR during a period May 1, 2013-April 30, 2016. The three first chapters are devoted to the study of the nanosecond capillary discharge in the form of the fast ionization wave (FIW). The fourth chapter describes physics of a nanosecond surface dielectric barrier discharge (SDBD) at ambient gas temperature and high pressures (1-6 bar) in air. Details about the filamentation and about morphology of the surface streamers are given in the Chapter 5. Chapter 6presents a preliminary numerical analysis of the ignition by a nanosecond discharge. Chapter 7 presents the high pressure high temperature reactor built recently at Laboratory for Plasma Physics. Chapter 8 describes the results of analysis of role of O(1D) in plasma assisted combustion including gas mixtures with hydrocarbons. The last, 9th Chapter contains a brief review of state of the art in plasma assisted ignition and combustion.
