The free boundary equilibrium problem for helically symmetric plasmas

Gardner, Henry James


An iterative technique is described for solving the helically symmetric plasma equilibrium equations with a free boundary. The method involves an application of Green’s theorem , and has been formulated for the geometry of a heliac. Provision is made to incorporate the field of the external solenoid into the model, and the limits of applicability of the conventional Fourier-Bessel series representation of th a t field are investigated. The free boundary model is implemented as p art of an...[Show more]
