Unprecedented amount of detailed, high-resolution observations of prominence fine structures provided by present space-borne and ground-based observatories represents a significant challenge for prominence modelling. Today’s models have to cope with the increasingly finer dimensions and ever better resolved dynamics of the observed fine structures. However, the increasing complexity of the prominence fine structure models opens new opportunities for deepening our understanding of these spectacular solar features.

Currently, prominence fine structure modelling stands on three main pillars: simulations of prominence magnetic field configurations, modelling of radiative transfer in the prominence plasma, and modelling of prominence fine structure dynamics. We will review the state-of-the-art and achievements of the present models and show the capabilities of the new generation of prominence fine structure models, combining the prominence magnetic field simulations with realistic representation of the prominence plasma and radiative transfer computations.
