This paper examines anomalous transport in a reversed field theta pinch. The principal effects are anomalous resistivity and rotation generation. Similarity solutions for the resistive decay are found which agree qualitatively with experiment. Also it is shown that the spin up and anomalous resistivity may be the effect of a single underlying cause, a current driven microinstability. Author
