AXISYMMETRIC STABILITY OF TRIPLET SHAPED TOKAMAK PLASMAS
Ideal MHD growth rates of axisymmetric modes of racetrack and triplet-shaped Tokamak plasmas in rectangular conducting shells are computed. Assuming fixed q-values on axis and on the plasma boundary, it is found that the triplet is considerably more stable against axisymmetric modes than the racetrack.
