Self-similar solutions for imploding z-pinch shells in magnetized plasmas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


Imploding z-pinch shells with total currents that are proportional to some power of time are investigated. Time-space separable self-similar solutions with cylindrical symmetry are explicitly obtained. The problem is treated asymptotically in high thermal conductivity within the model of magnetized resistive plasmas, while the ionization and radiation processes are ignored.
