    Abstract

    Analytical solutions for reconnective annihilation in curvilinear geometry are presented. These solutions are characterized by current density distributions varying both along the radial and azimuthal coordinates. They represent an extension of previously proposed models, based on purely radially dependent current densities. Possible applications of these solutions to the modeling of solar flares are also discussed.
