  • Polynomial generated polygons 

    Soares, Benedict J. (University of St Andrews, 1999) - Thesis
    A turtle geometric construction on the plane, called a polynomial generated polygon (PGP) and represented by 𝒫[sub]f,[sub]pᵐ, is generated from the sequence obtained from evaluating f(𝓍) ∈ ℤ [𝓍] over ℤ modulo pᵐ where ...
  • Nonlinear magnetic reconnection 

    Colin, A. M. (University of St Andrews, 1987) - Thesis
    In many astrophysical problems magnetic reconnection plays a major role. Despite this reconnection theory remains incompletely understood, partly due to the strong non-linearity of the governing equations and the resulting ...
  • The nonlinear thermal evolution of coronal structures 

    Mendoza Briceño, César Augusto (University of St Andrews, 1996) - Thesis
    The thermal equilibrium and evolution of coronal structure is studied in this thesis. A symmetric and constant cross-sectional coronal loop is considered and, because of the strong magnetic field, the plasma is confined ...
  • Exact solutions for axisymmetric and nonpolytropic astrophysical winds 

    Lima, João José de Faria Graça Afonso (University of St Andrews, 1995) - Thesis
    Astrophysical outflows are common in a large variety of objects with very different length-scales. They can be almost spherical, as in the case of the solar wind, or show a high degree of anisotropy as in pre-main sequence ...
  • Chromospheric effects on global solar oscillations 

    Johnston, Alan (University of St Andrews, 1994) - Thesis
    A study has been made of the global solar oscillations known as p-modes. The Sun is represented by a plane-parallel stratified plasma. Solutions are found to the magnetohydrodynamic equations of motion in such a plasma, ...
