A theoretical study of the effect of electron‐ion recombination on the voltage‐current characteristic of the positive column of a glow discharge is presented. In the absence of recombination, as the current increases the voltage decreases and reaches a constant value. In the presence of recombination and at sufficiently high currents, the voltage increases with increasing current.
