INFLUENCE OF AN ENERGETIC ION POPULATION ON TOKAMAK PLASMA STABILITY
The stability of a tokamak plasma to ideal and resistive internal kink modes in the presence of an energetic trapped particle population is analysed. Domains of stability are found for both slowing-down and Maxwellian particle distributions. The stable domains are at moderately high plasma beta and involve a significant but easily obtainable high energy trapped particle density.
