Abstract : As the publication record suggests during the tenure of the grant we have investigated a number of topics relevant to nonlinear dynamics and equilibrium structures in the magnetotail. Some of the initial goals of the program were modified so as to allow for more active participation of undergraduate students in the research. We are still in the process of completing some of the self consistent magnetotail equilibrium calculations. A brief discussion of the major accomplishments of the research program is presented in the following paragraphs.
