  • Abstract

The multi-hierarchy simulation model for magnetic reconnection is developed, where both micro and macro hierarchies are expressed consistently and simultaneously. Two hierarchies are connected smoothly by shake-hand scheme. As a numerical test, propagation of one-dimensional Alfve´n wave is examined using the multihierarchy simulation model. It is found that waves smoothly pass through from macro to micro hierarchies and vice versa.
