Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

The effect of pressure anisotropy on the stability of ideal-MHD ballooning modes is studied for a large-aspect-ratio tokamak of circular cross-section. Significant increase of the perpendicular energy of electrons or ions can cause strong modifications of the stability boundary, especially at low shear.
