Abstract

The effect of external noise on the transition of the radial electric field in a nonaxisymmetric torus is studied. Depending on the size of the fluctuations, the transition of the radial electric field can either exhibit hysteresis or choose the path for which the thermodynamic potential (generalized heat production rate) Ṡl is an absolute minimum. Fluctuations other than the radial electric field are also studied.
