Summary and Info
This concise and systematic account of the current state of this new branch of astrophysics presents the theoretical foundations of plasma astrophysics, magneto-hydrodynamics and coronal magnetic structures, taking into account the full range of available observation techniques -- from radio to gamma. The book discusses stellar loops during flare energy releases, MHD waves and oscillations, plasma instabilities and heating and charged particle acceleration. Current trends and developments in MHD seismology of solar and stellar coronal plasma systems are also covered, while recent progress is presented in the observational study of quasi-periodic pulsations in solar and stellar flares with radio, optical, X and gamma rays. In addition, the authors investigate the origin of coherent radio emission from stellar loops, paying special attention to their fine structure.For advanced students and specialists in astronomy, as well as theoretical and plasma physics.Content: Chapter 1 Introduction (pages 1–8): Chapter 2 Coronal Magnetic Loop as an Equivalent Electric Circuit (pages 9–37): Chapter 3 Resonators for MHD Oscillations in Stellar Coronae (pages 39–66): Chapter 4 Propagating MHD Waves in Coronal Plasma Waveguides (pages 67–92): Chapter 5 Prominence Seismology (pages 93–111): Chapter 6 The Coronal Loop as a Magnetic Mirror Trap (pages 113–130): Chapter 7 Flaring Events in Stellar Coronal Loops (pages 131–163): Chapter 8 Stellar Coronal Seismology as a Diagnostic Tool for Flare Plasma (pages 165–183): Chapter 9 Heating Mechanisms in Stellar Coronae (pages 185–204): Chapter 10 Loops and QPOs in Neutron Stars and Accretion Disk Coronae (pages 205–216): Chapter 11 Conclusions (pages 217–218):
