ABSTRACT
We have developed a new type of cellular automaton
(CA) model, the extended CA (X-CA), for the study of
solar flares. The X-CA model is consistent with the MHD
approach, in contrast to the previously proposed CA mod-
els (classical CAs), it consistently yields all the relevant
physical variables, and it successfully reproduces the ob-
served distributions of total energy, peak flux, and dura-
tion of solar flares. We present and discuss the relevant
plasma processes and set-up which are implemented by
the X-CA model in the framework of a commonly ac-
