Abstract

The nonlinear evolution of tearing modes in the presence of sheared mass flow is studied in the cylindrical geometry. It is demonstrated that a sufficient large sheared mass flow can destabilize the development of resistive tearing instability. It is suggested that the coupling of sheared mass flow with shear magnetic field may be a triggering of solar flares.
