Title: Method for driving plasma display panel

Abstract: A method for driving a plasma display panel that can generate stable and reliable discharge without making the circuit configuration of the driver complicated. According to this drive method, a plasma display panel where a pixel cell is formed at each intersection of a plurality of column electrodes and a plurality of row electrode pairs is driven such that, in a sustain process of at least one subfield out of subfields in one field display period, an auxiliary discharge is generated along with the sustain discharge in the pixel cell by applying an auxiliary pulse to the column electrode only while a first sustain pulse is being applied.
