The linearized CREATE-L plasma response model for the control of current, position and shape in tokamaks
CREATE-L, a simple and reliable linearized plasma response model for the control of the plasma current, position and shape in tokamaks, is presented. The basic assumption made is that the plasmaExpand

Self-organized helical equilibria as a new paradigm for ohmically heated fusion plasmas
A reversed-field pinch is a toroidal device for magnetically confining plasmas, and a potential alternative to the tokamak for a future fusion reactor. Observations of the evolution of aExpand
