Abstract

Nonlinear theory of Rayleigh—Taylor instability in plasma supported by a vacuum magnetic field shows that the growth rate of the mode, unstable in the linear theory, increases if the wavelength of perturbation π lies between

and 2πcrit. This might have an important bearing on the proposed thermonuclear MHD power generation experiments.
