             abstract = "This paper presents the simulation of the interaction of a comet 
                         with the solar wind. It is used the formalism of the ideal 
                         magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) in order to simulate the behaviour of 
                         such a system. The comet itself is inserted in the equations as a 
                         spherically symmetric source of ions. Specifically, this source 
                         term represents the process of mass-loading, that is, the 
                         phenomenon where the heavy cometary ions are picked up by the 
                         solar wind. From the numerical viewpoint, it is used the FLASH 
                         code to solve the system of equations of the MHD and to generate 
                         the output files. It is investigated the influence of the physical 
                         characteristics of the solar wind, such as velocity and magnetic 
                         field, on the coma and tail of the comet. This issue is addressed 
                         by performing simulations considering, for sake of comparison, 
                         three regimes of solar activity, namely: low activity, mean or 
                         typical activity and intense activity.",
