Abstract

Recent efforts on the theory of magnetic reconnection in collisionless regimes are reviewed. The differences between dissipative and collisionless reconnection are discussed. The results of simulations obtained with a new, initial value, fi?nite volume code are presented. The initial equilibrium is a tanh x for the magnetic ?eld component along y; while a strong guide fi?eld along the ignorable z direction is assumed. The con?guration is periodic along y; while perturbations are assumed to vanish at large |x|
