ABSTRACT
A novel mechanism for driving residual stress in tokamak plasmas based on k∥ symmetry breaking by the turbulence intensity gradient is proposed. The physics of this mechanism is explained and its connection to the wave kinetic equation and the wave-momentum flux is described. Applications to the H-mode pedestal in particular to internal transport barriers, are discussed. Also, the effect of heat transport on the momentum flux is discussed.
