Abstract Text:
Following up on previous work [1] we present examples of MHD equilibria for which we compare/contrast Lagrangian, Eulerian, and Dynamically Accessible stability. These kinds of stability differ by the constraints employed. Such constraints will be discussed, along with examples including simple convective instability, MRI configurations, and field-reversed configurations with flow.
