Aims. We construct a new analytical model of a solar coronal loop that is embedded in a gravitationally stratified and magnetically confined atmosphere. On the basis of this analytical model, we devise a numerical model of solar coronal loops. We adopt this model to perform the numerical simulations of its vertical kink oscillations excited by an external driver. Methods. Our model of the solar atmosphere is constructed by adopting a realistic temperature distribution and specifying the curved…

On Modeling the Kelvin–Helmholtz Instability in Solar Atmosphere

In the present review article, we discuss the recent developments in studying the Kelvin–Helmholtz (KH) instability of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves propagating in various solar magnetic

Magnetohydrodynamic Seismology of Quiet Solar Active Regions

The ubiquity of recently discovered low-amplitude decayless kink oscillations of plasma loops allows for the seismological probing of the corona on a regular basis. In particular, in contrast to

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

Quasi-Periodic Pulsations in Solar and Stellar Flares: A Review of Underpinning Physical Mechanisms and Their Predicted Observational Signatures

The phenomenon of quasi-periodic pulsations (QPPs) in solar and stellar flares has been known for over 50 years and significant progress has been made in this research area. It has become clear that

The Effect of Magnetic and Density Differences on the Fast Kink Oscillations of Neighboring Coronal Loops

It is reasonable that neighboring coronal loops may obtain similar momentum during a flare. The fast kink oscillations (FKOs) between them are thus mainly influenced by their physical differences. We

Vertical oscillations of a coronal loop observed by TRACE

We report on a loop oscillation event observed by TRACE in the 195 A bandpass at the solar limb. The difference images reveal the first evidence for vertical kink oscillations of the loop, i.e.,
