Abstract

The evolution of turbulent plasmas is investigated within the framework of resistive magnetohydrodynamics. The functional form of the mean electric field is derived for fluctuations generated by tearing and resistive-interchange modes. It is shown that a bath of such local and global modes in pinches causes toroidal field reversal with finite pressure gradients in the plasma.
