    Abstract

    The effect of sheared poloidal flow on the toroidal branch of the ion temperature gradient driven mode of magnetized nonuniform plasma is studied. A novel "nonmodal" calculation is used to analyze the problem. It is shown that the transverse shear flow considerably reduced the growth of the instability. A small but finite amount of viscosity and/or diffusion enhanced the stabilization process. (C) 2005 American Institute of Physics.
