Multi-region relaxed magnetohydrodynamics with anisotropy and flow

Dennis, Graham R.; Hudson, Stuart R.; Dewar, Robert L.; Hole, Matthew J.


We present an extension of the multi-region relaxed magnetohydrodynamics (MRxMHD) equilibrium model that includes pressure anisotropy and general plasma flows. This anisotropic extension to our previous isotropic model is motivated by Sun and Finn's model of relaxed anisotropic magnetohydrodynamic equilibria. We prove that as the number of plasma regions becomes infinite, our anisotropic extension of MRxMHD reduces to anisotropic ideal MHD with flow. The continuously nested flux surface...[Show more]
