White-light eclipse and coronagraph images of the Sun reveal the complex structure of the Sun's outer atmosphere, the solar corona. The structures observed are produced by the interaction of the solar wind with the coronal magnetic field. Advances in coronal modeling techniques now allow us to realistically simulate this interaction. Specific examples of our calculations and comparisons of our results with coronal data can be found on this page.
