Magnetic-Field Reconnection Driven By Perturbations On Boundaries
Title - Alternative
Tokamak; Disruptions; Mechanism; Physics, Multidisciplinary
We consider magnetic field reconnection in a plasma induced by perturbing the boundaries of a slab Of Plasma with a magnetic neutral surface inside. We look into several current controversies on this problem and try to clarify some aspects of the analytic picture of this driven reconnection process. We also look into the plasma flow dynamics associated with this reconnection process - an aspect that has been considered so far (the latter fact is partly the cause of some of the controversies of this problem).
