Abstract: There is a large volume of observations showing wave phenomena in the solar chromosphere and corona. These waves affect the very structure of the atmosphere, and may contribute to the heating of both the chromosphere, transition region and corona. They also provide powerful diagnostics using seismological techniques. In this talk we will review the observations of waves and compare these with simulations of wave excitation in the solar convection zone and of wave propagation and mode conversion in realistic magnetic field topologies.
