Theory of thermal solitary vortices in current-carrying edge plasmas

  • J. P. Mondt (a1) and J. Liu (a2)

Abstract

It is shown that the nonlinear dynamics of current-convective excitations in current-carrying edge plasmas allows for the existence of solitary vortices despite the effects of magnetic shear and dissipation in the form of parallel electron thermal conductivity. The potential importance of this finding with regard to heat balance is pointed out.
