  • On the emergence and evolution of jets and vortices in turbulent planetary atmospheres 

    Jougla, Thibault (University of St Andrews, 2019-06-25) - Thesis
    This thesis investigates the formation and evolution of jets and vortices in turbulent planetary atmospheres using a dual approach of high-resolution numerical simulations and novel laboratory experiments. A two-layer ...
  • Three dimensional MHD simulations of the dynamics and energetics of coronal flux tubes 

    Howson, Thomas Alexander (University of St Andrews, 2019-06-25) - Thesis
    In this thesis we present the results of three-dimensional MHD simulations of the evolution of magnetic flux tubes within the solar atmosphere. We consider the dynamics and energetics of coronal loops that are perturbed ...
  • Semigroup congruences : computational techniques and theoretical applications 

    Torpey, Michael (University of St Andrews, 2019-06-25) - Thesis
    Computational semigroup theory is an area of research that is subject to growing interest. The development of semigroup algorithms allows for new theoretical results to be discovered, which in turn informs the creation ...
  • Maser radiation from collisionless shocks 

    Speirs, D. C.; Ronald, K.; Phelps, A. D. R.; Koepke, M. E.; Cairns, Robert Alan; Rigby, A.; Cruz, F.; Trines, R. M. G. M.; Bamford, R.; Kellet, B. J.; Albertazzi, B.; Cross, J. E.; Fraschetti, F.; Graham, P.; Kozlowski, P. M.; Kuramitsu, Y.; Miniati, F.; Morita, T.; Oliver, M.; Reville, B.; Sakawa, Y.; Sarkar, S.; Spindloe, C.; Koenig, M.; Silva, L. O.; Lamb, D. Q.; Tzeferacos, P.; Lebedev, S.; Gregori, G.; Bingham, R. (2019) - Journal article
    This paper describes a model of electron energization and cyclotron-maser emission applicable to astrophysical magnetized collisionless shocks. It is motivated by the work of Begelman, Ergun and Rees [Astrophys. J. 625 , ...
  • Measuring the electron temperatures of coronal mass ejections with future space-based multi-channel coronagraphs : a numerical test 

    Bemporad, Alessandro; Pagano, Paolo; Giordano, Silvio (2018-11) - Journal article
    Context. The determination from coronagraphic observations of physical parameters of the plasma embedded in coronal mass ejections (CMEs) is of crucial importance for our understanding of the origin and evolution of these ...
