1 [1] with two balls on opposite sides of the top of a hill: not an equilibrium. However, if the two balls are constrained by a wire connecting them, all of a sudden infinitely many equilibrium positions are obtained. In other words, constraints produce a more intricate energy landscape. Before we turn to the implications for the waves and instabilities, let us consider the effects of flow on the two generic classes of equilibria, of plane plasma slabs and cylindrical flux tubes, that were studied in Chapters 7 and 9 of Volume [1].

3 Solution paths in the complex ω plane 39 but we construct the solution path for the model I eigenvalues by invoking that extended problem. However, the argument presented shows the physical significance of the solution path: it is not just a way of solving the EVP, but it constitutes an intrinsic structure of the complex ω-plane for a large class of spectral problems. Accordingly, the condition W2 = 0 for the solution paths delineates the areas of the complex ω-plane where solutions are obtained of the extension with the model III BVP, where an external device either injects energy into the system (W2 < 0) or extracts it (W2 > 0).

122) These equalities now hold for any solution of the left or right BVP (except at the continuous spectra). Clearly, W2 may be considered as some kind of measure for the distance to eigenvalues. 83), obtained in the proof of self-adjointness of G: σ=V+ 2 ν = ± −V −W1 + W2 ≡ − 12 i(W − W ∗ ) ≡ 14 i = − 14 i ⇒ |ω|2 = −W 1 + ξ ∗ · G(ξ) − ξ · G(ξ ∗ ) dV (1D) 1 2 ξ ∗ Π(ξ) − ξΠ(ξ ∗ ) dS = ξ1 Π2 − ξ2 Π1 x2 x1 . 123) For simplicity, the surface integral over the left and right boundaries is reduced in the last step for a one-dimensional (1D), separable, system (as analyzed in Chapter 13), where the complex variables are split into real and imaginary parts, ξ = ξ1 + iξ2 , Π = Π1 + iΠ2 .
