Magnetohydrodynamic Equilibria  

Thomas Wiegelmann

Online publication date:
Mar 2020
Magnetohydrodynamic equilibria are time-independent solutions of the full magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations. An important class are static equilibria without plasma flow. They are ... More

Magnetohydrodynamic Reconnection  

D. I. Pontin

Online publication date:
Feb 2020
Magnetic reconnection is a fundamental process that is important for the dynamical evolution of highly conducting plasmas throughout the Universe. In such highly conducting plasmas the ... More

Solar Dynamo  

Robert Cameron

Online publication date:
Apr 2020
The solar dynamo is the action of flows inside the Sun to maintain its magnetic field against Ohmic decay. On small scales the magnetic field is seen at the solar surface as a ubiquitous ... More
