Analytical profiles , with , respectively.
The radial profile of the factor. A major radius is assumed.
The radial profiles of the factor, corresponding to the three profiles. A major radius is assumed.
Pitch angle dependent factor after the bounce orbit average of the displacement eigenfunction, for the ideal kink mode from the cylindrical model.
Radial profiles of the normalized integral over velocity space, obtained after pitch angle integration under various assumptions, for the poloidal harmonic (a) and (b) .
Example of modification of the pitch angle dependence of the normalized magnetic drift , by the finite plasma pressure.
Critical curves in the plane for the and 3 unstable RWM, respectively. Below the curves, the mode is fully stabilized by the drift kinetic effect. The asymptotic case A is considered, with and without including the diamagnetic correction to the precession drifts. Note the smallness of the parameter space with a full kinetic stabilization.
Stabilization/destabilization of the RWM by the drift kinetic effects under various assumptions. We assume , , , and compare two equilibria with (a) and (b) .
Effect of the plasma rotation on the drift kinetic modification of the RWM stability. We consider a case with , , , and without inclusion of the diamagnetic correction to the precession drifts.
