Waves in plasmas by Thomas Howard Stix( Book )

12 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and Japanese and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To illustrate the development of some fundamental concepts in plasma waves, a number of experimental observations, going back over half a century, are reviewed. Particular attention is paid to the phenomena of dispersion, collisionfree damping, finite-Larmor-radius and cyclotron and cyclotron-harmonic effects, nonlocal response, and stochasticity. One may note not only the constructive interplay between observation and theory and experiment but also that major advances have come from each of the many disciplines that invoke plasma physics as a tool, including radio communication, astrophysics, controlled fusion, space physics, and basic research

On Current Penetration and Plasma Disruption by Thomas Howard Stix( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is suggested that, in a tokamak discharge, the initial rapid current penetration and the disruptive instability may each be attributed to a type of nonlinear double tearing instability which causes growth and overlap of radially separated magnetic islands. The ensuing reconnection and braiding of magnetic lines would enhance local radial heat and particle transport, and could permit rapid redistribution of plasma current, inducing positive or negative spikes in the loop-voltage signal.

Propagation and mode conversion for waves in nonuniform plasmas by Thomas Howard Stix( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The following topics are described: (1) the hybrid resonance, (2) Alfven resonance, (3) the intermediate-frequency electromagnetic wave equation, (4) the standard equation, (5) the tunneling equation, (6) asymptotic solutions of the tunneling equation, (7) localized absorption, and (8) matched asymptotic expansions; the low-frequency Alfven resonance.

Ballooning mode stability of bean-shaped cross sections for high-[beta] tokamak plasmas by M. S Chance( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Indentation of a tokamak plasma on its inner major radius side is shown to be strongly beneficial for achieving high-.beta. stability against ballooning modes. Using a set of reasonable equilibrium profiles, it is found that moderate indentation provides accessibility to the second region of stability. Ohmic equilibrium configurations which exhibit the second stability region have not yet been found
