Dynamic magnetic reconnection at an Xtype neutral point
Craig, Ian J.D.; McClymont, A.N. (1991)The relaxation of a twodimensional "Xtype" neutral point magnetic field disturbed from equilibrium is considered. Perturbations are shown to possess welldefined azimuthal modes which allow an exact determination of the ... 
Dynamical finiteamplitude magnetic reconnection at an Xtype neutral point
McClymont, A.N.; Craig, Ian J.D. (1996)The linear theory of magnetic reconnection demonstrates that the rate of energy release at an Xtype neutral point is "fast"  only logarithmically dependent on the plasma resistivity  if the field is strictly twodimensional, ... 
Linear theory of fast reconnection at an Xtype neutral point
Craig, Ian J.D.; McClymont, A.N. (1993)A linear theory is developed for the dissipation of the free magnetic energy in small disturbances imposed on the potential field of an Xtype neutral point. An eigenmode analysis, using cylindrical coordinates centered ... 
Magnetic energy release in dynamic fan reconnection models
Craig, Ian J.D.; McClymont, A.N. (199901)The problem of dynamic, threedimensional magnetic reconnection is considered. Analytic “fan current” solutions are derived by superposing planewave disturbances on magnetic Xpoint equilibria. The localization of the ... 
Shear wave dissipation in planar magnetic XPoints
Craig, Ian J.D.; McClymont, A.N. (199706)The resistive dissipation of nonlinear shear wave disturbances is discussed. We consider an incompressible, “open” Xpoint geometry, in which mass and energy are free to enter and leave the reconnection region. An analytic ...
