Relaxed MHD states of a multiple region plasma

Hole, Matthew; Mills, Ruth; Hudson, Stuart R; Dewar, Robert


We calculate the stability of a multiple relaxation region MHD (MRXMHD) plasma, or stepped-Beltrami plasma, using both variational and tearing mode treatments. The configuration studied is a periodic cylinder. In the variational treatment, the problem reduces to an eigenvalue problem for the interface displacements. For the tearing mode treatment, analytic expressions for the tearing mode stability parameter Δ′, being the jump in the logarithmic derivative in the helical flux across the...[Show more]
