Mechanical heating in stellar chromospheres using the sun as a test caseThe shock dissipation hypothesis for solar atmospheric heating is extended to stellar chromospheres of late type stars which have significant convective envelopes. Principle wave modes are studied for their generation, propagation, and heating properties in the presence of a magnetic field, and various approximations on when a sound wave becomes strong enough to produce heating in the atmosphere are presented.
