The low-frequency stability of a long thin annular layer of energetic ions in a background plasma with finite axial and zero azimuthal magnetic field is studied analytically. It is found that although the equilibrium is susceptible to the kink instability, low mode number perturbations can be stabilized in the limit of N(i)/N(b) --> O when the curr...
