Title
Nonlinear stability of axisymmetric ideal magnetohydrodynamic flows
Author
Abstract
 In this paper the general theory developed by Vladimirov et al. is extended to nonlinear (Lyapunov) stability for axisymmetric (invariant under rotations around a fixed axis) solutions of the ideal incompressible magnetohydrodynamic flows for a particular situation, namely arbitrary field and poloidal flow. The appropriate norm is a sum of magnetic and kinetic energies and the mean square vector potential of the magnetic field.
