This book provides an understanding of the physics at work in sunspots and solar coronal loops, and offers a new approach to Magneto-Fluid-Dynamics (or Magneto-Hydro-Dynamics).The book stresses the use of electric currents in Magneto-Fluid-Dynamics. As a rule, authors discuss magnetic field lines without referring to the required electric currents. It also stresses the importance of electric space charges inside conductors that move in magnetic fields.
Provides an understanding of the physics at work in sunspots and solar coronal loops
This book provides a new approach to Magneto-Fluid-Dynamics (or Magneto-Hydro-Dynamics), mainly in two different ways
Contrary to the usual custom of discussing imaginary magnetic field lines, the book focuses on the electric currents that are induced in conductors that move in magnetic fields
