Magnetic Reconnection of Electric Currents

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 341)


Magnetic reconnection reconnects field lines together with field-aligned electric currents. This process may play a significant role in the dynamics of astrophysical plasma because of a topological interruption of the electric currents.
