Neoclassical plasma viscosity and transport processes in non-axisymmetric tori

A review paper “Neoclassical plasma viscosity and transport processes in non-axisymmetric tori” by K.C. Shaing, K. Ida, and S.A. Sabbagh (APAM alumn, APAM Senior Research Scientist, and APAM Adjunct Professor) has been recently published in Nuclear Fusion 55 (2015) 125001 (http://stacks.iop.org/0029-5515/55/125001).

The paper reviews the extensive work by Shaing on neoclassical transport processes, especially neoclassical toroidal viscosity (NTV), published in ~10 papers by Shaing through the period 2000 ~ 2010. Foundational NTV experimental work on stellarators and tokamaks is also contained in the review.
