Magnetic reconnection is a process that changes magnetic field topology in highly conducting fluids. Within the standard Sweet-Parker model, this process would be too slow to explain observations (e.g., solar flares). In reality, the process must be ubiquitous as astrophysical fluids are magnetized and motions of fluid elements necessarily entail crossing of magnetic frozen-in field li...
Nowadays in the astrophysical community, the problem of magnetic reconnection is approached using two different points of view, from the micro-physical scale using collisionless kinetic numerical studies, and from macroscopic magnetohydrodynamical fluid approximation studies, describing well the collisional media. Both approximations have their strong points, but also significant limit...
