The Craig-Sneyd analytic solutions to the Parker problem

This paper follows up on the conclusion by Craig and Sneyd (2005) that the solutions to a linearized magnetostatic problem are counterexamples to the magnetostatic model of Parker (1972), demonstrating a general absence of continuous equilibrium for a magnetic field with an arbitrarily prescribed topology. The analysis presented here shows that Craig and Sneyd had incorrectly rejected an important subset of those solutions in a misunderstanding of the Parker model. The complete set of solutions when correctly interpreted is, in fact, physically consistent with the Parker model. A general discussion of the Parker theory of spontaneous current sheets is given.
