Title of program: THALIA Catalogue Id: ACWB_v1_0 Nature of problem The lifetime of a magnetically-confined plasma column depends critically on the growth rates of any unstable eigenmodes. The plasma is considered here as a one-component fluid described by the ideal one- dimensional MHD equations. Purely oscillating or purely growing and damped modes can be studied by linearising these equations and perturbing an equilibrium state of the column. Not only the purely growing modes, i.e. the unstable eigenfunctions, but also stable, purely oscillating modes can be ...
