Anderson localization of ballooning modes, quantum chaos and the stability of compact quasiaxially symmetric stellarators

Redi, M. H.; Johnson, J. L.; Klasky, S.; Canik, J.; Dewar, R. L.; Cooper, W. A.


The radially local magnetohydrodynamic(MHD) ballooning stability of a compact, quasiaxially symmetric stellarator (QAS), is examined just above the ballooning beta limit with a method that can lead to estimates of global stability. Here MHDstability is analyzed through the calculation and examination of the ballooning modeeigenvalue isosurfaces in the 3-space (s,α,θk); s is the edge normalized toroidal flux, α is the field linevariable, and θk is the perpendicular wave vector or ballooning...[Show more]
