Abstract

An energy principle is constructed for magnetic confinement schemes that have anisotropic plasma pressure. A steepest descent iterative procedure is applied to the Fourier moments of the inverse magnetic flux coordinates to minimize the total energy of the system and to thus generate helically symmetric ELMO Snaky Torus magnetohydrodynamic equilibria.
