Properties of pulsed corona streamers are measured and simulated in three dimensions (3D). Stereophotography is used to measure branching angles and to investigate whether apparent streamers reconnections are real. 3D simulations of two parallel streamers show electrostatic repulsion, but they also can merge due to photoionization. Other aspects of streamer interactions become evident through theoretical investigations of a periodic array of streamers.
