Magnetodynamic Phenomena in the Solar Atmosphere - Prototypes of Stellar Magnetic Activity

Overview

This volume presents the papers from a major international conference aimed at cross-linking research in the fields of solar and stellar activity. The Yohkoh satellite, with its spectacular views of solar coronal structures seen via their X-ray emission, provided the immediate motivation for the conference. How do these solar structures transcribe into their stellar counterparts; what insights can the more extreme stellar activity provide to guide the analysis of solar data? Coming four years after the launch of ...

Overview

This volume presents the papers from a major international conference aimed at cross-linking research in the fields of solar and stellar activity. The Yohkoh satellite, with its spectacular views of solar coronal structures seen via their X-ray emission, provided the immediate motivation for the conference. How do these solar structures transcribe into their stellar counterparts; what insights can the more extreme stellar activity provide to guide the analysis of solar data? Coming four years after the launch of Yohkoh, this conference provided a good platform for displaying its discoveries. Longer-term variation associated with the 11-year solar cycle can also be seen clearly in the data presented. The new data strongly support many earlier interpretations of such magnetodynamic activity, but also provide some new and perplexing mismatches now stimulating new theoretical work.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Proceedings of the May 1995 event, an interdisciplinary meeting between researchers of solar and stellar activity. Contains sections on magnetic atmospheres of the sun and stars; wind and mass loss from the sun and stars; productions of superhot plasma and high-energy particles in the sun and stars; models of solar and stellar flares; magnetic behavior of the sun and stars; and governing factors of solar/stellar activity. Subjects of poster papers include interpretation of SXT data concerning the diffuse corona, the stability of solar photospheric magnetic flux tubes, and large-scale arcade formation on May 15, 1992, and its consequences.
