Abstract

A numerical code (HBT) has been developed which solves for the equilibrium, global stability and high-n stability of plasmas with arbitrary cross-section. Various plasmas are analyzed for their stability to these modes in the high-beta limit. Screw-pinch equilibria are stable to equation for drift waves is analyzed numerically. The toroidal branch is shown to be destabilized by the non-adiabatic response of trapped and circulating particles.
