Statistical magnetohydrodynamics and reversed-field-pinch quiescence

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A statistical model of a bounded, incompressible, cylindrical magnetofluid is presented. This model predicts the presence of magnetic fluctuations about a cylindrically-symmetric, Bessel-function-model, mean magnetic field, which satisfies del x <B> = ..mu.. <B>. As theta ..-->.. 1.56, the model predicts that the significant region of the fluctuation spectrum narrows down to a single (coherent) m = 1 mode. An analogy between the Debye length of an electrostatic plasma and ..mu../sup -1/ suggests the physical validity o the model's prediction of <deltaB(r)deltaB(r')> when /r - r'/ greater than or equal to ..mu../sup -1/.
