Spontaneous current sheets in magnetic fields : with applications to stellar x-rays by E. N Parker( )

14 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book expands upon ideas in the author's classic text Cosmical Magnetic Fields. This is the first book-length treatment of the magnetohydrodynamic theory of spontaneous magnetic discontinuities. Most continuous magnetic fields develop internal discontinuities as they relax to equilibrium. The formation of the tangential discontinuities is driven by Maxwell stresses and provides sites for rapid reconnection and dissipation of the magnetic free energy, which is the primary cause of the sun's x-ray emitting corona
Conversations on electric and magnetic fields in the cosmos by E. N Parker( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today's standard textbooks treat the theoretical structure of electric and magnetic fields, but their emphasis is on electromagnetic radiation and static-electric and magnetic fields. In this book, Eugene Parker provides advanced graduate students and researchers with a much-needed complement to existing texts, one that discusses the dynamic electromagnetism of the cosmos--that is, the vast magnetic fields that are carried bodily in the swirling ionized gases of stars and galaxies and throughout intergalactic space. Parker is arguably the world's leading authority on solar wind and the effe

Magnetic reconnection : concepts and applications by Walter Gonzalez( )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides an overview of recent research highlights in the main areas of application of magnetic reconnection (MR), including planetary, solar and magnetospheric physics and astrophysics. It describes how research on magnetic reconnection, especially concerning the Earth's magnetosphere, has grown extensively due to dedicated observations from major satellite missions such as Cluster, Double Star and Themis. The accumulated observations from these missions are being supplemented by many theoretical and modelling efforts, for which large scale computer facilities are successfully being used, and the theoretical advances are also covered in detail. Opening with an introductory discussion of some fundamental issues related to magnetic reconnection, subsequent chapters address topics including collisionless magnetic reconnection, MHD structures in 3D reconnection, energy conversion processes, fast reconnection mediated by plasmoids, rapid reconnection and magnetic field topology. Further chapters consider specific areas of application such as magnetospheric dayside and tail reconnection, comparative reconnection in planetary systems and reconnection in astrophysical systems. The book offers insight into discussions about fundamental concepts and key aspects of MR, access to the full set of applications of MR as presently known in space physics and in astrophysics, and an introduction to a new related area of study dealing with the annihilation of quantum magnetic fluxes and its implications in the study on neutron star activity. The book is aimed primarily at students entering the field, but will also serve as a useful reference text for established scientists and senior researchers."--Provided by publisher

Solar winds by E. N Parker( Book )

2 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is suggested that corpuscular radiation is hydrodynamic expansion of the solar corona which is called solar wind. Arguments are presented for this expansion of the solar corona in terms of motion of the comet tail aurorae production, magnetic storms, and cosmic-ray effects on earth. The corona is taken to be isotherrnal out to an undefined distance (in multiples of the radius of the base of the corona) and from there it expands adiabatically until supersonic velocities are reached at infinity. The solar wind is considered to continue after five astronomical units on the spiralling solar magnetic field. Applications of the solar wind hypothesis to solar sailing are discussed. (C.J.G.)

Eugene N. Parker response to History of Geophysics Survey by E. N Parker( )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Response to a survey of approximately 250 leading geophysicists worldwide, conducted by the American Institute of Physics (AIP) Center for History of Physics and the Committee on History of Geophysics of the American Geophysical Union in 1997. Recipients were asked to send copies of their curriculum vitae and a list of publications as Part One of the survey and were then asked to discuss their entry into science in general and geophysics specifically as a career; how their scientific achievements came about and major efforts they were involved in which did not achieve the hoped for results; changes from one discipline to another; funding sources; the role of other disciplines in their own research; their work as educators; and their involvement in geophysics-related institutions. Contents include Part One of the Questionnaire, a letter, curriculum vitae, publications list, an autobiographical statement entitled "Looking back over the years", and five published or to-be-published articles. Parker recounts his childhood interests and his graduate studies at California Institute of Technology. Noteworthy figures that influenced his career include Walter M. Elsasser, S. Chandrasekhar, and J. A. Simpson. Parker clearly establishes his divergence from the scientific community over the theory of the magnetosphere
