    • Elements of solar activity : particle acceleration and filament formation 

      Wood, Paul D. (University of St Andrews, 2005-01) - Thesis
      This thesis studies the acceleration of particles to super-thermal energies in explosive solar events as well as the magnetic changes in connectivity that may be responsible for changes in the morphology of quiescent ...
    • New aspects of particle acceleration in collapsing magnetic traps 

      Eradat Oskoui, Solmaz (University of St Andrews, 2014-01) - Thesis
      Collapsing magnetic traps (CMTs) have been suggested as one of the mechanisms that could contribute to particle energisation in solar flares. The basic idea behind CMTs is that charged particles will be trapped on the ...
    • Solar flare particle acceleration in collapsing magnetic traps 

      Grady, Keith J. (University of St Andrews, 2012-06-22) - Thesis
      The topic of this thesis is a detailed investigation of different aspects of the particle acceleration mechanisms operating in Collapsing Magnetic Traps (CMTs), which have been suggested as one possible mechanism for ...
