Using cylindrical capsule and magnetic fields to achieve ignition conditions in the ICF method

As of 2050, the world as whole will consume 2-3 times the energy then the amount it consumes today. Current methods to produce energy, will not be able to answer this need in the future. Nuclear fusion may be the solution. Is a cylindrical capsule, that is considered less efficient than the common spherical one, with the addition of a magnetic field, could achieve similar or mitigating conditions for ignition. For the mechanisms that effects the total energy, an equation was developed that was modified for a cylindrical system. An achievable value for the magnetic field was found, that will satisfy the needed conditions.
