about

The book contains courses taught to a public of Ph. D. students, post-docs and con?rmed researchers in all ?elds of heliospheric plasma physics. It aims at identifying physical issues which are common to two di?erent ?elds of astr- omy: solar and magnetospheric physics. Emphasis is given to basic processes of transport and conversion of energy: magnetic reconnection is discussed in detail from the viewpoints of MHD and kinetic physics. Processes of charged particle acceleration are reviewed and confronted with recent observations. The subject is introduced by a summary of MHD and the basic structures and parameters of the solar atmosphere, terrestrial ionosphere and mag- tosphere are reviewed. The book combines a pedagogic and comprehensive presentation of physical issues and raises fully open questions, with the c- plementary and sometimes con?icting views of geophysicists and solar phy- cists. The book's focus, while basic, opens new avenues.
