We present results of three-dimensional (3D) numerical simulations of a fast magnetic twister excited above a foot-point of the potential solar coronal arcade that is embedded in the solar atmosphere with the initial VAL-IIIC temperature profile, which is smoothly extended into the solar corona. With the use of the FLASH code, we solve 3D ideal magnetohydrodynamic equations by specifying a twist in the azimuthal component of magnetic field in the solar chromosphere. The imposed perturbation… 

Solar Magnetic Flux Ropes

In the early 1990s, it was found that the strongest disturbances of the space–weather were associated with huge ejections of plasma from the solar corona, which took the form of magnetic clouds when

Magnetic swirls and associated fast magnetoacoustic kink waves in a solar chromospheric flux tube

We perform numerical simulations of impulsively generated magnetic swirls in an isolated flux tube that is rooted in the solar photosphere. These swirls are triggered by an initial pulse in a

Aims. Propagation and energy transfer of torsional Alfven waves in solar magnetic flux tubes of axial symmetry is studied. Methods. An analytical model of a solar magnetic flux tube of axial symmetry

Numerical Simulations of Torsional Alfvén Waves in Axisymmetric Solar Magnetic Flux Tubes

We numerically investigate Alfvén waves propagating along an axisymmetric and non-isothermal solar flux tube embedded in the solar atmosphere. The tube magnetic field is current-free and diverges

An isolated, isothermal, and wide magnetic flux tube embedded either in the solar chromosphere or in the lower solar corona is considered, and the propagation of linear torsional Alfvén waves is

Transient dynamics of perturbations in astrophysical disks

We review some aspects of a major unsolved problem in understanding astrophysical (in particular, accretion) disks: whether the disk interiors can be effectively viscous in spite of the absence of

Theoretical evidence for cutoff frequencies for Alfven waves propagating in the solar atmosphere

Propagation of linear Alfven waves in the isothermal solar atmosphere is investigated numerically and analytically. It is shown that the two wave variables, the velocity and magnetic field

UNWINDING MOTION OF A TWISTED ACTIVE REGION FILAMENT

To better understand the structures of active region filaments and the eruption process, we study an active region filament eruption in active region NOAA 11082 in detail on 2010 June 22. Before the

Maps of the large-scale structure of the Universe at redshifts 2-4 can be made with the Lyman-alpha forest which are complementary to low redshift galaxy surveys. We apply the Wiener interpolation
