Title: An extension of Palumbo's method of solution for the Grad-Shafranov equation
Author: Hernandes, JA

Abstract: We present an extension of Palumbo's method for solving Grad Shafranov equation for ideal axisymmetric magnetohydrodynamic equilibria. The method relies essentially on an expansion in even powers of radius for the square of the gradient of the magnetic stream function and a suitable coordinate transformation that allows reducing the problem of mapping magnetic surface to quadratures. The resulting exact equilibria have magnetic surface contours different from isodynamic ones, allowing modeling flattened or D-shaped plasma tori. (C) 2009 American Institute of Physics.
