Kink instabilities and the gas-embedded Z-pinch

Description: A comparison of a previous gas-embedded Z-pinch experiment (by E. Smars) is made using a nonlinear theory of kink instability (by W. Manheimer, et al.). Good agreement is found for some experimental cases while for others the theory predicts too fast a growth of the kink. To account for this discrepancy the evolution of topologically different secondary currents is postulated. (auth)
