Comparisons of J y in the simulation Run(0) to the Harris solution along z. a J y (x/d=−8) profile in the simulation (black line) follows that of the Harris solution for d=5 (blue line) at the initial stage of the simulation Ω i t=0.4. b J y (x/d=−8) profile in the simulation (black line) follows the Harris solution for d=1.6 (red line) at the time Ω i t=4.0
