Title : Coronal EUV Waves and Their Interaction with the Localized Magnetic Structures

Abstract Type : Oral
Abstract Category : Sun and the Solar System
Abstract : Global EUV Waves are large-scale wave fronts, which propagate across the magnetic field lines in the solar corona. There are several views on their nature (e.g., wave and non-wave models), however, still the exact information is lacking. I will review the various developments on understanding the nature of these waves including our recent conjecture on the formation of these waves as fast magnetoacoustic mode and slow & bright EIT-wave components. Finally, I discuss the interaction of these waves with various solar magnetic structures, and infer their role in generating localized MHD oscillations and thereby MHD seismology (e.g., inference of magnetic field in the outer corona etc).
