The procedure requires a mapping to the PEST co-ordinates and then computation of delta-W in the plasma region, and in the external vacuum-region to set up the potential and kinetic energy matrices. This is followed by an eigenvalue determination using an inverse vector iteration techinque.

the two Princeton equilibrium codes. The equilibrium file expected is fort.17. The input file is MAPLST. The output is written into two binary files, FORT.41 and FORT.42, which contain the metric as required by the stability code. Some of the quantities are written as text in OUTPUT. There are no graphics.
