Ballooning mode the spectrum in general toroidal systems. (English) Zbl 0538.76123
In this paper, the authors have given a rigorous analyse of the toroidal effects on the stability of high $$\beta$$ plasma under MHD approximation. Several questions regarding the earlier established theory are raised such as the relevance of ideal ballooning theory to nonaxisymmetric systems. There are twelve sections and two appendices in the paper.
