FRC, field-reversed configuration, equilibrium, magnetic field curvature
Some features of short field-reversed configuration (FRC) equilibria relevant to transport and stability are studied numerically and analytically. It is shown that magnetic field curvature effects significantly increase the FRC magnetization for plasma elongations epsilon is less than or equal to 4.
