Stability of ballooning modes in a rotating plasma

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

An equation describing ballooning modes localized to a magnetic field line embedded in rotating plasma is derived and analyzed. On a typical ballooning growth time these modes may be completely stabilized by shear in the flow, in a way which appears to be simple to achieve experimentally. Their long-time behavior is more complicated.
