A numerical model of isotropic homogeneous turbulence with helical forcing is investigated. The resulting flow, which is essentially the prototype of the α dynamo of mean-field dynamo theory, produces strong dynamo action with an additional large scale field on the scale of the box (at wavenumber k = 1; forcing is at k = 5). This large scale field is nearly force-free and exceeds the equipartition value. As the magnetic Reynolds number Rm increases, the saturation field strength and the growth… CONTINUE READING
