### Abstract

The theoretical analysis of the energy distribution function of electrons in weakly ionized gases is developed in a relatively high E/N by using the three-term approximation of the distribution function in the Boltzmann equation. The continuity equation of the electron swarm with an anisotropic distribution function is also derived. The present analysis is applied to the steady-state electron swarm in neon: the energy distribution functions and the swarm parameters are computed numerically.
