Nonlinear m = 1 mode and fast reconnection in collisional plasmas

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Time evolution of the m = 1 resistive kink mode is shown to be compromised of two exponential growth phases separated by a transition period during which the growth becomes temporarily algebraic. A modified Sweet-Parker model that takes into account some of the changes in the geometry of the core plasma and the growing island is offered to explain the departure from the algebraic growth of the early nonlinear phase.
