Context. The understanding of fossil fields origin, topology and stability is one of the corner stones of the stellar magnetism theory. On one hand, since they survive over secular time-scales, they may modify the structure and the evolution of their host stars. On the other hand, they must have a complex stable structure since it has been demonstrated by Tayler and collaborators that simplest purely poloidal or toroidal fields are unstable on dynamical time-scales. In this context, the only… CONTINUE READING
