Magnetic reconnection and transient phenomena in accretion driven systems
June 23, 2017
In this presentation I review some aspects of magnetohydrodynamics in astrophysical environments
that can give rise to transient thermal and non-thermal emission. I focus specifically on the
magnetic transport and reconnection in accretion driven systems, especially the role it may play
in the production of transient multi-wavelength emission in these systems. The discussion related
to magnetic reconnection starts with a brief historical overview, after which some of the latest
results are discussed. It is shown that magnetic reconnection can indeed be a serious contender
for the driving mechanism behind the transient burst-like emission in many accretion driven environments,
from galactic to extra-galactic sources.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
