Topological Methods for the Analysis of Solar Magnetic Fields

  title={Topological Methods for the Analysis of Solar Magnetic Fields},
  author={D. W. Longcope},
The solar coronal magnetic field is anchored to a complex distribution of photospheric flux consisting of sunspots and magnetic elements. Coronal activity such as flares, eruptions and general heating is often attributed to the manner in which the coronal field responds to photospheric motions. A number of powerful techniques have been developed to characterize the response of the coronal field by describing its topology. According to such analyses activity will be concentrated around… CONTINUE READING
