ABSTRACT
A study is made of the MHD stability of a collisionless anisotropic-pressure plasma in a nonparaxial magnetic configuration with an internal conductor in cylindrical geometry. A stability criterion for flutelike modes is obtained, and the families of marginally stable profiles of the longitudinal and transverse plasma pressures are calculated by using the Chew-Goldberger-Low anisotropic MHD equations. Possible marginally stable plasma states are considered with allowance for the expected turbulent relaxation and self-organization processes, on the one hand, and isotropization processes, on the other. A stability criterion for Alfvén modes is also derived in the Chew-Goldberger-Low model.
