Summary of magnetically
channeled wind shock model applied to q1Ori C
The X-ray emission lines of q1Ori C are quite narrow
at all observed viewing angles -- as our MHD simulations predict.
And occultation of the
magnetosphere by the star accounts nicely for the modest change in
X-ray flux with viewing angle.
forbidden-to-intercombination line ratios in Mg and S indicate
that the bulk of the X-ray emitting plasma is within 1 stellar
radius of the photosphere - in accord with the MHD simulations.
