Title: Large-scale perturbations due to a small-scale instability in a finite-conductivity plasma

Abstract

By considering kink modes in a plasma cylinder in a strong axial magnetic field as an example, it is demonstrated that, because of the finite plasma conductivity (the finite longitudinal plasma permittivity {epsilon}{sub parallel}), large-scale perturbations can grow with time due to a small-scale instability that develops near a certain magnetic surface.
