  • The formation and eruption of magnetic flux ropes in solar and stellar coronae 

    Gibb, Gordon Peter Samuel (University of St Andrews, 2015-11-30) - Thesis
    Flux ropes are magnetic structures commonly found in the solar corona. They are thought to play an important role in solar flares and coronal mass ejections. Understanding their formation and eruption is of paramount ...
  • Forward modeling of EUV and gyrosynchrotron emission from coronal plasmas with FoMo 

    Van Doorsselaere, Tom; Antolin, Patrick; Yuan, Ding; Reznikova, Veronika; Magyar, Norbert (2016-02-26) - Journal article
    The FOMO code was developed to calculate the EUV and UV emission from optically thin coronal plasmas. The input data for FOMO consists of the plasma density, temperature and velocity on a 3D grid. This is translated to ...
  • The investigation of quasi-separatrix layers in solar magnetic fields 

    Restante, Anna Lisa (University of St Andrews, 2011-06-20) - Thesis
    The structure of the magnetic field is often an important factor in many energetic processes in the solar corona. To determine the topology of the magnetic field features such as null points, separatrix surfaces, and ...
  • A non-linear force-free field model for the solar magnetic carpet 

    Meyer, Karen Alison (University of St Andrews, 2012-06-22) - Thesis
    The magnetic carpet is defined to be the small-scale photospheric magnetic field of the quiet Sun. Observations of the magnetic carpet show it to be highly dynamic, where the time taken for all flux within the magnetic ...
  • On the topology of global coronal magnetic fields 

    Edwards, Sarah J. (University of St Andrews, 2014-12-01) - Thesis
    This thesis considers the magnetic topology of the global solar corona. To understand the magnetic topology we use the magnetic skeleton which provides us with a robust description of the magnetic field. To do this we use ...
  • The period ratio P₁/2P₂ in coronal waves 

    Macnamara, Cicely K. (University of St Andrews, 2011-11-30) - Thesis
    Increasing observational evidence of wave modes brings us to a closer understanding of the solar corona. Coronal seismology allows us to combine wave observations and theory to determine otherwise unknown parameters. The ...
