Abstract.X-ray emission from stars in the cool half of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram is generally attributed to the presence of a magnetic corona that contains plasma at temperatures exceeding 1 million K. Coronae are ubiquitous among these stars, yet many fundamental mechanisms operating in their magnetic fields still elude an interpretation through a detailed physical description. Stellar X-ray astronomy is therefore contributing toward a deeper understanding of the generation of magnetic…

X-ray emission from stars in the cool half of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram is generally attributed to the presence of a magnetic corona that contains plasma at temperatures exceeding 1 million K.
Physical Processes in Magnetically Driven Flares on the Sun, Stars, and Young Stellar Objects
The first flare on the Sun was observed exactly 150 years ago. During most of the long history, only secondary effects have been noticed, so flares remained a riddle. Now the primary flare products,
Key problems in cool-star astrophysics
Selected key problems in cool-star astrophysics are reviewed, with emphasis on the importance of new ultraviolet missions to tackle the unresolved issues.UV spectral signatures are an essential probe
Ionization and heating by X-rays and cosmic rays
High-energy radiation from the central T Tauri and protostars plays an impor- tant role in shaping protoplanetary disks and influences their evolution. Such radiation, in particular X-rays and
Investigation of Coronal Properties of X-Ray Bright G-dwarf Stars Based on the Solar Surface Magnetic Field–Corona Relationship
We investigated the coronal properties of G-dwarf stars including the Sun over a wide range of X-ray luminosity L X (3 × 1026 to 2 × 1030 erg s−1). We analyzed the archival data of 10 X-ray bright (L
The Relative Emission from Chromospheres and Coronae: Dependence on Spectral Type and Age
Extreme-ultraviolet and X-ray emission from stellar coronae drives mass loss from exoplanet atmospheres, and ultraviolet emission from stellar chromospheres drives photochemistry in exoplanet
The Evolution of X-Ray Emission in Young Stars
The evolution of magnetic activity in late-type stars is part of the intertwined rotation-age-activity relation, which provides an empirical foundation to the theory of magnetic dynamos. We study the
Coronal Evolution of the Sun in Time: High-Resolution X-Ray Spectroscopy of Solar Analogs with Different Ages
We investigate the long-term evolution of X-ray coronae of solar analogs based on high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy and photometry with XMM-Newton. Six nearby main-sequence G stars with ages between
X-rays from T Tauri: a test case for accreting T Tauri stars
Context. The generation of X-rays in accreting T Tauri stars (TTS) is thought to be predominantly due to energy dissipation in magnetic elds, but alternative X-ray generation mechanisms have been
Detection of Flare-induced Plasma Flows in the Corona of EV Lac with X-Ray Spectroscopy
Stellar flares are characterized by sudden enhancement of electromagnetic radiation from the atmospheres of stars. Compared to their solar counterparts, our knowledge on the coronal plasma dynamics
