Summary
This book expands upon ideas in the author's classic text Cosmical Magnetic Fields. This is the first book-length treatment of the magnetohydrodynamic theory of spontaneous magnetic discontinuities. Most continuous magnetic fields develop internal discontinuities as they relax to equilibrium. The formation of the tangential discontinuities is driven by Maxwell stresses and provides sites for rapid reconnection and dissipation of the magnetic free energy, which is the primary cause of the sun's x-ray emitting corona
