Abstract

Helical magnetic systems in which the lines of the modulus of the magnetic field strength B remain constant in the direction of the poloidal angle variable are investigated to clarify in more detail the connection between the shape of the magnetic surfaces and the topology of the B = constant surfaces on one the one hand and particle confinement on the other. The possibilities to fulfil the pseudo symmetry condition as well as the condition that the second adiabatic invariant J(II) forms closed contours are investigated numerically for almost zero and finite beta values.
