smod_equil_gold_hoyle Submodule

This submodule defines a Gold-Hoyle equilibrium in cylindrical geometry. This equilibrium configuration models a filament with a uniform twist such that all fieldlines perform an equal amount of turns around the cylinder axis. The geometry can be overridden in the parfile.

This equilibrium is taken from Van der Linden, R. A. M., Goossens, M. (1991). "The thermal continuum in coronal loops: instability criteria and the influence of perpendicular thermal conduction." Solar physics, 134.2, 247-273.
