    Abstract

    Magnetic reconnection is a fundamental dynamical process in highly conductive plasmas. It can be regarded as the process that removes the following difficulty. On typical dynamical time scales a sufficiently hot spatially extended PLASMA behaves approximately as an ideal fluid in the sense that resistive effects are ignorable. As a consequence, the magnetic field is `frozen' to the plasma motion ...
