Coronal Seismology: Waves and Oscillations in Stellar by Alexander Stepanov,Valery V. Zaitsev,Valery M. Nakariakov

By Alexander Stepanov,Valery V. Zaitsev,Valery M. Nakariakov

This concise and systematic account of the present kingdom of this new department of astrophysics provides the theoretical foundations of plasma astrophysics, magneto-hydrodynamics and coronal magnetic constructions, making an allowance for the whole diversity of obtainable commentary concepts -- from radio to gamma.

The booklet discusses stellar loops in the course of flare power releases, MHD waves and oscillations, plasma instabilities and heating and charged particle acceleration. present tendencies and advancements in MHD seismology of sun and stellar coronal plasma structures also are coated, whereas contemporary development is gifted within the observational research of quasi-periodic pulsations in sun and stellar flares with radio, optical, X and gamma rays. furthermore, the authors examine the starting place of coherent radio emission from stellar loops, paying detailed recognition to their high-quality structure.

For complex scholars and experts in astronomy, in addition to theoretical and plasma physics.
