Localized reconnection model (LRM) has been proposed for the sawtooth crash. The localized reconnection may be driven by a ballooning mode. This process explains the fast heat and particle transfer which keeps the condition q_0 < 1. The partial crash can be explained by the flattening of the higher m islands due to the localized reconnection. Experimental evidences support LRM.
