Numerical Delta' studies of the nonlinear finite-beta tearing mode
It is shown in the present study that the Delta' of the (m=2,n=1) mode computed with the PEST-3 code is virtually always positive. Saturation can nevertheless be achieved provided the symmetry breaking term of a current gradient is included in the resistive layer.
