Convergence properties of a nonvariational 3D MHD equilibrium code

Published

Journal Article

Details are presented of the PIES code, which uses a nonvariational algorithm for calculating fully three-dimensional MHD equilibria. The convergence properties of the code are studied for several axisymmetric and nonaxisymmetric finite β equilibria that have magnetic surfaces. © 1989.
