## Description

Title of program: ERATO Catalogue Id: ABVS_v1_0 Nature of problem This computer code treats the stability of a Tokamak-like plasma described by the ideal linearized magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations. The plasma is considered to be in an equilibrium state. After perturbation of such an equilibrium, the evolution of the normal modes can be calculated by linearizing the ideal MHD equations. Any mode (unstable or stable) of the spectrum can be examined. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ABVS_v1_0; ERATO; 10.1016/0010-4655(81)90013-8 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
