Magnetic Reconnection: Concepts and Applications (Astrophysics and Space Science Library, Volume 422)


This ebook offers an summary of contemporary examine highlights generally components of software of magnetic reconnection (MR), together with planetary, sun and magnetospheric physics and astrophysics. It describes how learn on magnetic reconnection, in particular in regards to the Earths magnetosphere, has grown widely because of committed observations from significant satellite tv for pc missions equivalent to Cluster, Double megastar and Themis. The gathered observations from those missions are being supplemented by way of many theoretical and modelling efforts, for which huge scale computing device amenities are effectively getting used, and those theoretical advances also are coated intimately.
Opening with an introductory dialogue of a few basic matters concerning magnetic reconnection, next chapters handle issues together with collisionless magnetic reconnection, MHD buildings in 3D reconnection, power conversion procedures, speedy reconnection mediated by means of plasmoids, speedy reconnection and magnetic box topology. additional chapters ponder particular parts of software resembling magnetospheric dayside and tail reconnection, comparative reconnection in planetary platforms, reconnection on the Heliospheric boundary and reconnection in astrophysical systems.The publication bargains perception into discussions approximately basic suggestions and key facets of MR, entry to the entire set of purposes of MR as shortly recognized in house physics and in astrophysics, and an advent to a brand new similar sector of analysis facing the annihilation of quantum magnetic fluxes and its implications within the examine on neutron megastar task. The e-book is aimed essentially at scholars getting into the sphere, yet also will function an invaluable reference textual content for demonstrated scientists and senior researcher."
