This volume contains a selection of papers presented at the fourth Hinode Science Meeting held in October 2010, four years after the launch of the Japanese Hinode satellite. The conference showcased high spatial and temporal resolution observations of the Sun, as well as the most advanced numerical simulations of the solar atmosphere. A special session was devoted to explore the synergies between Hinode and the Solar Dynamics Observatory.

Results from the SUNRISE balloon-borne solar observatory were also discussed at the conference.

The 12 invited papers published in this volume offer an updated view of current problems and recent advances in solar physics. These papers are suitable for researchers and graduate students approaching solar physics for the first time. Active researchers in the field will also benefit from them. Complementing the reviews, a number of contributed papers present exciting advances in nearly all areas of modern solar physics, including solar dynamo and photospheric convection, sunspots and active regions, waves, magnetic reconnection and atmospheric heating, flares and eruptive phenomena, and the solar wind.
