## Linear Growth Rates for D3D shot 81499 at 4.000 secs

Here are more gyrofluid linear growth rates for D3D shot 81499 at 4.000
secs and rho=0.5. These results compare using circular concentric flux surfaces to general geometry.
Both use T_i=T_e and n_i=n_e.

I think the normalization of k_theta rho_i has changed in the general
geometry case (different B),
so I doubt that the shift in k_theta rho_i shown in this figure is
real. I have to check this.

The main point is that the peak growth rate in general geometry
increases by about 20% over the circular concentric case for
these parameters.
