We assume that the plasma, regarded as an ideal, compressible, perfectly conducting fluid, has the shape of a torus and is surrounded by a conductor, as indicated in Figure 1. In the equilibrium configuration, the pressures and density inside the plasma are taken to be constant; it is assumed that there are no electric currents flowing except on the surface of the plasma.
