We study possible interrelations between the 300 year record of the yearly sunspot numbers and the solar inertial motion (SIM) using the recently developed technique of synchronization analysis. Phase synchronization of the sunspot cycle and the SIM is found and statistically confirmed in three epochs These results give quantitative support to the… (More)

The Roberts flow, a helical flow in the form of convectionlike rolls, is known to be capable of both kinematic and nonlinear dynamo action. We study the Roberts dynamo with particular attention being paid to the spatial structure of the generated magnetic field and its back-reaction on the flow. The dynamo bifurcation is decisively determined by the… (More)

Context. The standard dynamo model for the solar and stellar magnetic fields is based on the αΩ mechanism, namely, an interplay between differential rotation (the Ω effect) and a mean electromotive force generated by helical turbulent convection flows (the α effect). There are, however, a number of problems with the α effect and αΩ dynamo models. Two of… (More)

We study a transition to hyperchaos in the two-dimensional incompressible Navier-Stokes equations with periodic boundary conditions and an external forcing term. Bifurcation diagrams are constructed by varying the Reynolds number, and a transition to hyperchaos (HC) is identified. Before the onset of HC, there is coexistence of two chaotic attractors and a… (More)

The multiplicity of stable convection patterns in a rotating spherical fluid shell heated from the inner boundary and driven by a central gravity field is presented. These solution branches that arise as rotating waves (RWs) are traced for varying Rayleigh number while their symmetry, stability, and bifurcations are studied. At increased Rayleigh numbers… (More)

The dynamics and bifurcations of convective waves in rotating and buoyancy-driven spherical Rayleigh-Bénard convection are investigated numerically. The solution branches that arise as rotating waves (RWs) are traced by means of path-following methods, by varying the Rayleigh number as a control parameter for different rotation rates. The dependence of the… (More)

Received (Day Month Year) Revised (Day Month Year) We investigate the dynamo effect in a flow configuration introduced by G.O. Roberts in 1972. Based on a clear energetic hierarchy of Fourier components on the steady-state dynamo branch, an approximate model of interacting modes is constructed covering all essential features of the complete system but… (More)

The bifurcation behaviour of the 3D magnetohydrodynamic equations has been studied for external forcings of varying degree of helicity. With increasing strength of the forcing a primary non-magnetic steady state loses stability to a magnetic periodic state if the helicity exceeds a threshold value and to diierent non-magnetic states otherwise.

It is shown that the eeect of mean-eld magnetohydrodynamics, which consists in the generation of a mean electromotive force along the mean magnetic eld by turbulently uctuating parts of velocity and magnetic eld, is equivalent to the simultaneous generation of both turbulent and mean-eld magnetic helicities, the generation rates being equal in magnitude and… (More)

We investigate numerically the appearance of heteroclinic behavior in a three-dimensional, buoyancy-driven uid layer with stress-free top and bottom boundaries, a square horizontal periodicity with a small aspect ratio, and rotation at low to moderate rates about a vertical axis. The Prandtl number is 6:8. If the rotation is not too slow, the… (More)
