Computation of multi-region relaxed magnetohydrodynamic equilibria

Hudson, S. R.; Dewar, R. L.; Dennis, G.; Hole, M. J.; McGann, M.; von Nessi, G.; Lazerson, S.


We describe the construction of stepped-pressure equilibria as extrema of a multi-region, relaxed magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) energy functional that combines elements of ideal MHD and Taylor relaxation, and which we call MRXMHD. The model is compatible with Hamiltonian chaos theory and allows the three-dimensional MHD equilibrium problem to be formulated in a well-posed manner suitable for computation. The energy-functional is discretized using a mixed finite-element,...[Show more]
