The entire solar photosphere exhibits a rich structure of large and small scale magnetic fea-tures like sunspots, pores faculae or plages. But except for sunspots and pores these magnetic elds cannot be spatially resolved with present telescopes, although these elds clearly man-ifest themselves in high resolution spectropolarimetric observations. With the improvement of spectropolarimetric sensitivity and spatial resolution over the last years it became clear that these unresolved magnetic elds are much more ubiquitous than previously thought

Magnetic fields play an important role in making a planet habitable by protecting the environment from the solar wind. Without the geomagnetic field, for example, life on Earth as we know it would not be possible.

Magnetic fields play an important role in making a planet habitable by protecting the environment from the solar wind. And results from recent space missions to Mars and Venus strongly indicate that planetary magnetic fields play a vital role in preventing atmospheric erosion by the solar wind. However, very little is known about the underlying interaction between the solar wind and a planet’s magnetic field.

The magnetic flux in the solar atmosphere occurs in extremely fragmented, nearly fractal form, with a range of spatial scales that extend well beyond the angular resolution limit of current telescopes and into the optically thin regime.

Magnetic fields are responsible for much of the variability and structuring in the universe, but only on the Sun can the basic magnetic field related processes be explored in detail. While several excellent textbooks have established a diagnostic foundation for exploring the physics of unmagnetized stellar atmospheres through spectral analysis, no corresponding treatise for magnetized stellar atmospheres has been available. The present monograph fills this gap. The theoretical foundation for the diagnostics of stellar magnetism is developed from first principles in a comprehensive way, both within the frameworks of classical physics and quantum field theory, together with a presentation of the various solar applications. This textbook can serve as an introduction to solar and stellar magnetism for astronomers and physicists at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level and will also become a resource book for more senior scientists with a general interest in cosmic magnetic fields.
