Magnetic reconnection and relaxation phenomena in Spherical Tokamak
Earth, Planets and Space volume 53, pages561–564(2001)
Reconnection is a transient process in essence, and causality is a key point in dealing with reconnection. The driven concept came from this viewpoint. Computer simulation is a powerful tool to understand the overall processes in a self-consistent manner. One example of global scale nonlinear processes observed in laboratory plasmas, where the driven magnetic reconnection plays important roles, is described.
