Magnetic Reconnection in the Sun and the Magnetosphere

9th August 2004 to 10th August 2004

Organiser: Terry Forbes (University of New Hampshire) and Eric Priest (St Andrews University)

Spitalsfields Day

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the mathematical aspects of reconnection theory that have been developed for various applications in laboratory and space plasmas. Each area of application tends to have different science objectives, and this has led to different mathematical developments of the theory which are little known outside the specific area of application. Presentations and discussion periods during this workshop will allow participants to obtain a global overview of reconnection theory and to learn of recent mathematical developments over a wide range of applications.
