Abstract

The stability conditions of an equilibrium plasma for perturbations with a singularity are derived from the energy principle for a non-ideal MHD plasma. The stability conditions are shown to include a stability criterion for the helical resistive tearing mode that is equivalent to the stability condition derived from conventional tearing mode theory. The effects of the resistive wall on stability are also discussed briefly.
