The correspondence between the forced magnetic reconnection induced by perturbing the boundary of the simple Taylor model and the surface-wave-induced magnetic reconnection given by Alfven resonance theory is pointed out explicitly by showing that the theory of forced magnetic reconnection is actually embedded in the Alfven resonance theory. The advantages of viewing the forced reconnection as surface-wave-induced reconnection are briefly discussed in the context of the formation of small-scale structures at the magnetospheric boundary and solar coronal heating.
