FINITE ELEMENT SEMI-DISCRETIZATION OF LINEARIZED COMPRESSIBLE AND RESISTIVE MHD
The full resistive MHD equations are linearized around an equilibrium with cylindrical symmetry and solved numerically as an initial-value problem. The semi- discretization using cubic and quadratic finite elements for the spatial discretization and a fully implicit time advance yields very accurate results even for small values of the resistivity. In the application different phenomena such as waves, resistive instabilities and overstable modes are addressed.
