Solar and Stellar Flares: Questions and Problems

  • D. J. Mullan

Abstract

Although progress has been made in understanding certain aspects of the physics of solar and stellar flares, there are a number of topics which, in the author’s opinion, still pose a problem. We summarize these topics here.

Keywords
