We provide examples of periodic solutions (in both 2 and 3 dimension) of the
    Magnetohydrodynamics equations such that the topology of the magnetic lines
    changes during the evolution. This phenomenon, known as magnetic reconnection,
    is relevant for physicists, in particular in the study of highly conducting
    plasmas. Although numerical and experimental evidences exist, analytical
    examples of magnetic reconnection were not known.
