Increasing upon the information first proposed in his seminal e-book Cosmical Magnetic Fields, Eugene N. Parker the following deals the 1st in-depth remedy of the magnetohydrodynamic conception of spontaneous magnetic discontinuities. In detailing his conception of the spontaneous formation of tangential discontinuities (current sheets) in a magnetic box embedded in hugely carrying out plasma, Parker indicates the way it can be utilized to provide an explanation for the job of the exterior magnetic fields of planets, stars, interstellar gasoline clouds, and galaxies, in addition to the magnetic fields in laboratory plasmas. Provocative and engaging, Spontaneous present Sheets in Magnetic Fields provides a daring new conception that would excite curiosity and dialogue in the course of the house physics community.
