Solar and stellar eruptions: observations and modelling
The session focuses on most recent advances on the study of solar and stellar eruptions properties from a observational and modelling point of view. Thanks also to the availability of continuous monitoring of stars for the search of exoplanets, flares from different types stars and their differences and similarities with solar flares are now being studied in great details. Large stellar filaments and their disappearance are also detected for a long time (for instance as transient H-alpha absorption features), suggesting the existence of stellar eruptions. As for flares, the stellar counterpart of solar Coronal Mass Ejections (i.e. stellar CMEs) could be simply a "larger scale" version of solar eruptions, but no evidence for their detection has been reported so far. Future development of stellar coronagraphs could improve our actual understanding of these phenomena.
