Simulations of linear and non-linear dynamics of Alfvén eigenmodes in a torus
Linear and non-linear dynamics of various toroidicity induced global Alfvén eigenmodes are investigated by means of an initial value numerical code. The code uses the reduced magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) model expanded to the third order in the inverse aspect ratio parameter epsilon. Non-linear saturation of the toroidal Alfvén eigenmodes (TAE) and of the resistive periodic shear Alfvén eigenmodes (RPSAE) due to MHD non-linearities is investigated numerically.
