Abstract

The interaction of p-modes (acoustic waves) with a magnetic flux tube is investigated. A set of linearized MHD equations is solved numerically in a two-dimensional domainwith cylindrical geometry. Thewave functions for p-modes are calculated in and around magnetic flux tubes using eigenfunctions from the unperturbed solution as a boundary condition. The amplitudes of the oscillations are found to be suppressed in the magnetized region with the suppression decreasing with depth. It is also found that the absorption of p-modes strongly depends on the degree l as well as the flux tube radius and the magnetic field strength. Convergence of magnetic field may be necessary in order to fit simultaneously the observed phase shifts and absorption coefficients.
