Physics of the Solar Corona - An Introduction with Problems and Solutions

Markus J. Aschwanden

Physics of the Solar Corona - An Introduction with Problems and SolutionsPhysics of the Solar Corona An Introduction with Problems and Solutions is a comprehensive introduction to solar physics, based on results from a new generation of solar space missions. It utilises observations made at many wavelengths, from hard X-rays, soft X-rays, extreme UV and radio wavelengths. The book describes the solar corona, and sets it in the context of basic plasma physics before moving on to discuss plasma instabilities, plasma heating, magnetic reconnection and particle acceleration processes. It also presents the latest results on coronal heating and radiation fundamental processes in all stars and describes in detail spectacular phenomena, such as solar flares and coronal mass ejections.
