Heliopause and Asteropauses

  • R. Lallement
Conference paper


In this paper I will use recent results about the heliosphere and the so-called ‘H walls’ around nearby star ‘asteropauses’ (the equivalent of the heliopause for other stars) to show new connections between heliospheric physics and other fields in space physics.
