Abstract

The progress that has been made in understanding the processes responsible for edge localized modes is reviewed. Attention is restricted to the role of ideal magneto-hydrodynamics and extensions of this model. As well as reviewing the current understanding, future research needs are discussed and speculative ideas for further development are proposed.
