Plasma loops are the elementary structures of solar flaring active regions and dominate the whole process of flaring eruptions. Standard flare models explain evolution and eruption after magnetic reconnection around the hot cusp-structure above the top of plasma loops very well; however, the early evolution of plasma loops before the onset of magnetic reconnection is poorly understood. Considering that magnetic gradients are ubiquitous in solar plasma loops, this work applies the magnetic…

MAGNETIC FIELD STRUCTURES TRIGGERING SOLAR FLARES AND CORONAL MASS EJECTIONS
Solar flares and coronal mass ejections, the most catastrophic eruptions in our solar system, have been known to affect terrestrial environments and infrastructure. However, because their triggering
Magnetic reconnection in the corona and the loop prominence phenomenon
Many classes of transient solar phenomena, such as flares, flare sprays, and eruptive prominences, cause major disruptions in the magnetic geometry of the overlying corona. Typically, the results
Dynamical and Thermal Manifestations of the Region above the Top of the Post-flare Loops: MHD Simulations
Observations proved that a distributed structure named a supra-arcade fan (SAF) exists above post-flare loops in solar eruptions. The locations of the SAF are spatially consistent with various
Dynamics of solar coronal loops
Observations in X-ray and EUV of the solar corona reveal the existence of very complex and dynamic structures made of plasma magnetically confined in loops. These structures can be studied by means

TLDR
This review focuses on coronal loops mostly as structures confining plasma, and topics such as loop oscillations and flaring loops (except for non-solar ones which provide information on stellar loops) are not specifically addressed here.
Coronal Heating Driven by A Magnetic-gradient Pumping Mechanism in Solar Plasmas
The solar coronal heating is a longstanding mystery in astrophysics. Considering that the solar magnetic field is spatially inhomogeneous with considerable magnetic gradient from solar surface to the
Dynamics of solar coronal loops I. Condensation in cool loops and its effect on transition region lines
We report numerical calculations of the condensation of plasma in short coronal loops, which have several interesting physical consequences. Firstly, we propose a connection between small, cool loops
MAGNETIC RECONNECTION THEORY FOR CORONAL LOOP INTERACTION
Images of post-flare loop systems recorded in coronal green- and red-line emissions display occasional transient enhancements at the intersection of some loops where they come into contact. Such
The cooling of coronal plasmas - II. Properties of the radiative phase
The robust $T \propto n^\delta$ power-law relationship between the temperature ( T ) and the density ( n ) that arises during the radiative cooling phase of a solar coronal loop is investigated.
Very Long-period Pulsations before the Onset of Solar Flares
Solar flares are the most powerful explosions occurring in the solar system, which may lead to disastrous space weather events and impact various aspects of our Earth. So far, it is still a big
