Abstract

Effect of inhomogeneity of radial electric field on drift wave instabilities is investigated. Curvature of static potential gives rise to an additional Landau resonance. Critical conditions for the stability due to sheared E×B motion of ions are estimated for various modes. Effect on anomalous transport coefficient is also discussed.
