Heating Mechanisms of the Solar Corona
Heating mechanisms of the solar corona are briefly addressed. Magnetic vs. non-magnetic, and DC vs. AC mechanisms are compared. AC or wave heating mechanisms are discussed, and future directions of research which is important in clarifying the contribution of wave heating are suggested.
