    The trapped particle theory of turbulent transport successfully explains key features of tokamak transport: the canonical L-mode, supershort plasma profiles, and the transport suppression by negative magnetic shear and poloidal rotation. Here, this theory is applied to reversed-field pinch (RFP)...
