Resonant Absorption of MHD Waves in Magnetic Loops in the Solar Corona

  • Marcel Goossens


Results of recent large scale numerical computations on the stationarystate of resonant absorption of MHD waves in coronal loops are discussed. Analytic theory is introduced as a helpfull tool for the interpretation of some of these numerical results. The need for further large scale numerical projects for determining the temporal and/or non-linear behaviour of resonant absorption is indicated.
