Magnetic reconnection in collisionless regime is investigated in two- and three-dimensional configurations. In the framework of two-dimensional configurations some recent results concerning the difference between dissipative and collisionless reconnection are reviewed. The results of numerical simulation of three-dimensional configurations are presented and analyzed. © 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
