    • Theoretical magnetic flux emergence 

      MacTaggart, David (University of St Andrews, 2011) - Thesis
      Magnetic flux emergence is the subject of how magnetic fields from the solar interior can rise and expand into the atmosphere to produce active regions. It is the link that joins dynamics in the convection zone with ...
    • Theory of one-dimensional Vlasov-Maxwell equilibria: with applications to collisionless current sheets and flux tubes 

      Allanson, Oliver Douglas (University of St Andrews, 2017-12-07) - Thesis
      Vlasov-Maxwell equilibria are characterised by the self-consistent descriptions of the steady-states of collisionless plasmas in particle phase-space, and balanced macroscopic forces. We study the theory of Vlasov-Maxwell ...
    • 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 ...
    • Topological structure of the magnetic solar corona 

      Maclean, Rhona Claire (University of St Andrews, 2007) - Thesis
      The solar corona is a highly complex and active plasma environment, containing many exotic phenomena such as solar flares, coronal mass ejections, prominences, coronal loops, and bright points. The fundamental element ...
    • Wave propagation, phase mixing and dissipation in Hall MHD 

      Threlfall, James W. (University of St Andrews, 2012-06-22) - Thesis
      In this thesis the effect of the Hall term in the generalised Ohm’s law on Alfvén (shear) and fast wave propagation and dissipation in the ion cyclotron frequency range is investigated. The damping of an initially ...
