Magnetic reconnection is a process which converts magnetic energy into kinetic and thermal energy of a plasma by means of a rearrangement of the topology of the magnetic field lines. This process is believed to be responsible for phenomena such as solar flares, geomagnetic substorms and sawtooth oscillations in tokamaks. The aim of this paper is to present analytical solutions of the magnetohydrodynamcs (MHD) equations describing a type of reconnection denoted as magnetic reconnective annihilation.
