Stability of short-axial-wavelength internal kink modes of an anisotropic plasma

  • M. Faghihi (a1) and J. Scheffel (a1)

Abstract

The double adiabatic equations are used to study the stability of a cylindrical Z-pinch with respect to small axial wavelength, internal kink (m ≥ 1) modes. It is found that marginally (ideally) unstable, isotropic equilibria are stabilized. Also, constant-current-density equilibria can be stabilized for P > P and large β
