We present a three-dimensional simulation of the corona of an FK Com-type rapidly rotating G giant using a magnetohydrodynamic model that was originally developed for the solar corona in order to capture the more realistic, non-potential coronal structure. We drive the simulation with surface maps for the radial magnetic field obtained from a stellar dynamo model of the FK Com system. This enables us to obtain the coronal structure for different field topologies representing different periods… Expand

EXOPLANET MODULATION OF STELLAR CORONAL RADIO EMISSION.
TLDR
This work indicates that radio signature of exoplanets might not be limited to low-frequency radio range, and finds that the intensity modulations are sensitive to the planetary magnetic field polarity for short-orbit planets, and to the stellar magnetic field strength for all cases. Expand
Could a change in magnetic field geometry cause the break in the wind-activity relation?
Wood et al. suggested that mass-loss rate is a function of X-ray flux (M alpha F-x(1.34)) for dwarf stars with F-x less than or similar to F-x,(6) equivalent to 10(6) erg cm(-2) s(-1). However, moreExpand
