Title: Multi-region relaxed magnetohydrodynamic stability of a current sheet

Abstract

It is shown that the resistive MHD stability of a slab force-free current sheet can be calculated using the variational principle of multi-region relaxed magnetohydrodynamics (MRxMHD) and that the corresponding stability boundary is in exact agreement with linear tearing mode theory.
