We have investigated the onset and acceleration of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and eruptive flares. To isolate the eruption physics, our study uses the breakout model, which is insensitive to the energy buildup process leading to the eruption. We performed 2.5D simulations with adaptive mesh refinement that achieved the highest overall spatial resolution to date in a CME/eruptive flare simulation. The ultra-high resolution allows us to separate clearly the timing of the various phases of the… 
Recurrent CME-like eruptions in emerging flux regions. I. On the mechanism of eruptions
We report on three-dimensional (3D) Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations of recurrent eruptions in emerging flux regions. We find that reconnection of sheared fieldlines, along the polarity
A Model for Energy Buildup and Eruption Onset in Coronal Mass Ejections
Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and eruptive flares (EFs) are the most energetic explosions in the solar system. Their underlying origin is the free energy that builds up slowly in the sheared magnetic
SYMPATHETIC MAGNETIC BREAKOUT CORONAL MASS EJECTIONS FROM PSEUDOSTREAMERS
We present high-resolution 2.5D MHD simulation results of magnetic breakout-initiated coronal mass ejections (CMEs) originating from a coronal pseudostreamer configuration. The coronal null point in
The Origin, Early Evolution and Predictability of Solar Eruptions
Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) were discovered in the early 1970s when space-borne coronagraphs revealed that eruptions of plasma are ejected from the Sun. Today, it is known that the Sun produces
Solar signatures and eruption mechanism of the August 14, 2010 coronal mass ejection (CME)
On August 14, 2010 a wide-angled coronal mass ejection (CME) was observed. This solar eruption originated from a destabilized filament that connected two active regions and the unwinding of this
Escape of Flare-accelerated Particles in Solar Eruptive Events
Impulsive solar energetic particle events are widely believed to be due to the prompt escape into the interplanetary medium of flare-accelerated particles produced by solar eruptive events. According
Recurrent CME-like Eruptions in Emerging Flux Regions. II. Scaling of Energy and Collision of Successive Eruptions
We present results of three-dimensional MHD simulations of recurrent eruptions in emerging flux regions. The initial numerical setup is the same with the work by Syntelis et al. 2017 (hereafter,
Particle Acceleration and Transport during 3D CME Eruptions
We calculate particle acceleration during CME eruptions using combined magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) and test-particle models. The CMEs are generated via the breakout mechanism and both 2D and 3D MHD
Origin and structures of solar eruptions I: Magnetic flux rope
Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and solar flares are the large-scale and most energetic eruptive phenomena in our solar system and able to release a large quantity of plasma and magnetic flux from the
Transition from eruptive to confined flares in the same active region
Context. Solar flares are sudden and violent releases of magnetic energy in the solar atmosphere that can be divided into two classes: eruptive flares, where plasma is ejected from the solar

Rotation of Coronal Mass Ejections during Eruption
Understanding the connection between coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and their interplanetary counterparts (ICMEs) is one of the most important problems in solar-terrestrial physics. We calculate the

A leading theory for the initiation of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) is the breakout model, in which magnetic reconnection above a filament channel is responsible for disrupting the coronal magnetic
Magnetic reconnection and mass acceleration in flare-coronal mass ejection events
An observational relationship has been well established among magnetic reconnection, high-energy flare emissions and the rising motion of erupting flux ropes. In this paper, we verify that the rate
Reconnectionless CME eruption: putting the Aly-Sturrock conjecture to rest
We demonstrate that magnetic reconnection is not necessary to initiate fast Coronal mass ejections (CMEs). The Aly-Sturrock conjecture states that the magnetic energy of a given force-free boundary

We propose a new model for the initiation of a solar coronal mass ejection (CME). The model agrees with two properties of CMEs and eruptive flares that have proved to be very difficult to explain
