This should be a scalar equation,

with the line following the equation reading as: which is the only non-zero component of the current disturbance.

.... as condition of instability. Under these favorable conditions, the ion tearing instability will grow at the growth rate in Eq. (7.83) whenever the growth rate exceeds the value

with . Eqs. (7.95) and (7.96) set thresholds on the ion tearing instability: a large normal component of the magnetic field in the center of the neutral sheet tends to stabilize the collisionless tearing mode. To visualize the unstable range we combine the conditions into one, defining . Then instability arises for

The graphic representation of this condition is shown in Fig. 7.9. For given b and instability arises in the shaded region. Hence ....
