Summary

The forced oscillations of an open magnetic flux tube shaken at its footpoints by convective motions are studied as a boundary-value problem of two different types: the one of wave propagation in a semi-infinite tube with a smooth radial profile of plasma parameters and another of standing wave resonance in a tube with step-wise radial profile. It is shown that an excitation of white noise probably leads to the temporal brightening of a flux tube at some height.
