Solar dynamo theory : Solar dynamo theory: a new look at the origin of small-scale magnetic fields
Fausto Cattaneo and David W Hughes delve beneath the surface of the Sun with numerical models of turbulent convection. Although magnetic dynamo action is traditionally associated with
Self-Exciting Fluid Dynamos
Exploring the origins and evolution of magnetic fields in planets, stars and galaxies, this book gives a basic introduction to magnetohydrodynamics and surveys the observational data, with particular
an 2 00 2 Physics of the solar cycle
The theory of the solar/stellar activity cycles is presente d, based on the mean-field concept in magnetohydrodynamics. A new approach to the formulation of the electromotive force as well as the t
Towards a model for the solar dynamo
We study a mean field model of the solar dynamo, in which the non-linearity is the action of the azimuthal component of the Lorentz force of the dynamo-generated magnetic field on the angular
Dynamos in planets, stars and galaxies
Nigel Weiss discusses dynamos in settings as diverse as galaxies and planets in this his 2000 Presidential Address to the Ordinary (A&G) Meeting of the Royal Astronomical Society. Abstract
On Stellar Dynamo Processes and Differential Rotation
Many stars exhibit strong magnetic fields, some of which are thought to be of primordial origin and others a sign of magnetic dynamo processes. We briefly review the results of observational studies

Relating stellar cycle periods to dynamo calculations
ABSTRA C T Stellar magnetic activity in slowly rotating stars is often cyclic, with the period of the magnetic cycle depending critically on the rotation rate and the convective turnover time of the
