Magnetohydrodynamics of the Sun
Magnetohydrodynamics of the Sun is a completely new up-to-date rewrite from scratch of the 1982 book Solar Magnetohydrodynamics, taking account of enormous advances in understanding since that date.

Critical conditions for magnetic instabilities in force-free coronal loops
Abstract The remarkable magnetohydrodynamic stability of solar coronal loops has been attributed to the anchoring of the ends of loops in the dense photosphere. However, all the previous analyses of

The magnetic nature of solar flares
AbstractThe main challenge for the theory of solar eruptions has been to understand two basic aspects of large flares. These are the cause of the flare itself and the nature of the morphological
Dynamics and Structure of Quiescent Solar Prominences
1 Introduction to Quiescent Solar Prominences (E R Priest).- 1.1 Basic Description.- 1.1.1 Different Types.- 1.1.2 Properties.- 1.1.3 Development.- 1.1.4 Structure.- 1.1.5 Eruption.- 1.2 Basic
Kink instability of solar coronal loops as the cause of solar flares
Solar coronal loops are observed to be remarkably stable structures. A magnetohydrodynamic stability analysis of a model loop by the energy method suggests that the main reason for stability is the
The structure of three‐dimensional magnetic neutral points
The local configurations of three‐dimensional magnetic neutral points are investigated by a linear analysis about the null. It is found that the number of free parameters determining the arrangement
