Density contours in MHD simulations of Rayleigh-Taylor instability.The
contours are drawn in relatively early stage of the nonlinear stage (upper
panel) and fully turbulent stage (lower panel). The Rayleigh- Taylor instability
has some common natures with pressure-driven instabilities in the Large
Helical Device of National Institute of Fusion Science (NIFS).
These results were obtained by using "plasma simulator" in NIFS.
