Context. Some contracting or expanding stars are thought to host a large-scale magnetic field in their radiative interior. By interacting with the contraction-induced flows, such fields may significantly alter the rotational history of the star. They thus constitute a promising way to address the problem of angular momentum transport during the rapid phases of stellar evolution. Aims. In this work, we aim to study the interplay between flows and magnetic fields in a contracting radiative zone…
