Abstract

Considering the spectral problem of microinstabilities in a curved system, methods for solving the global gyrokinetic equation are presented for the simple case of a cylindrical plasma. They prove to be efficient for computing the full unstable spectrum of ITG-type modes and have shown to be applicable to the 2-dimensional integral equation of tokamak configurations.
