A large x-ray flare on σ2 Coronae Borealis observed with exosat
We report the observation of a compact flare on σ2 Coronae Borealis. The energy requirements for the flare are discussed and we find that current-driven turbulence can produce heating fast enough. During the initial phase of the flare classical transport theory is not applicable.
