The propagation of plasmoids has been studied with small plasma guns. Larger structures of interest to fusion physics (i.e., spheromak plasmas) have also been investigated.

A numerical study employing a hybrid computer code (particle ions/fluid electrons) is made of the dynamics of translating ion rings in a highly conductive plasma.

The ion dynamics in a two-ion-species plasma pushed by a magnetic field pressure is examined. It is shown that the behavior of such a plasma may significantly differ from the behavior of a single-ion-species plasma, in which the current is carried by the electrons and the ions move in the direction of the magnetic field by: The ion dynamics in a two-ion-species plasma pushed by a magnetic field pressure is examined.

The spheromak contains large internal electric currents and their associated magnetic fields arranged so the magnetohydrodynamic forces within the spheromak are nearly balanced, resulting in long-lived confinement times without external fields.

The model predicts that no matter how messy or complicated the dynamics, a great range of plasma configurations always self-organize to a unique, simple final state.

This self-organization, called relaxation, is a fundamental concept that unifies understanding of spheromaks, solar corona loops, interplanetary magnetic clouds, and astrophysical Missing: RFP.

The book concludes by showing how spheromak ideas are closely related to the physics of solar prominences and interplanetary magnetic clouds.
