Plot showing the width of the saturated island, generated by an tearing mode, for different values of the parameter . Each value of refers to a member of a family of force-free equilibria with a stepped- profile, characterized by a step placed at in a RFP with aspect ratio . Such family originates by an initial Taylor equilibrium with .
