Isodynamic magnetohydrodynamic equilibria
Abstract
The class of isodynamic magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equilibria in three dimensions is studied. A reduction of the problem to that of finding a forcefree equilibrium is carried out, and the resulting forcefree problem transformed, by means of a threedimensional hodograph technique, to a simple and elegant form. The flux surface equation in a potentially very useful form is split off in a further representation.
