Abstract

Starting from the ideal magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations, an axisymmetric configuration is considered, consisting of a current-carrying plasma torus in a homogeneous magnetic field aligned parallel to the torus axis. At a certain field strength this configuration is in equilibrium, without the need of external current singularities such as wires or walls. The magnetic flux function is expanded in small inverse aspect ratio. The geometry of this configuration is completely determined to second order as a function of the profile parameters.
