Wyper, P. F. and DeVore, C. R. and Antiochos, S. K. (2018) 'A breakout model for solar coronal jets with filaments.', Astrophysical journal., 852 (2). p. 98.
Recent observations have revealed that many solar coronal jets involve the eruption of miniature versions of large-scale filaments. Such "mini-filaments" are observed to form along the polarity inversion lines of strong, magnetically bipolar regions embedded in open (or distantly closing) unipolar field. During the generation of the jet, the filament becomes unstable and erupts. Recently we described a model for these mini-filament jets, in which the well-known magnetic-breakout mechanism for large-scale coronal mass ejections is extended to these smaller events. In this work we use 3D magnetohydrodynamic simulations to study in detail three realizations of the model. We show that the breakout-jet generation mechanism is robust and that different realizations of the model can explain different observational features. The results are discussed in relation to recent observations and previous jet models.
