Nonlinear growth of one-dimensional density structures with a frozen-in magnetic field is investigated in Newtonian cosmology. A mechanism of magnetic field amplification is discussed. We discuss the relation between the initial conditions for the velocity field and the basic time-scales determining the growth of the magnetized structure.

Magnetic amplification in cylindrical cosmological structure
We derive the amplification of the cosmological magnetic field associated with forming gravitational structure. The self-similar solutions of magnetohydrodynamic equations are computed both in linearExpand
Spatial energy spectrum of primordial magnetic fields
Here, we analyze the primordial magnetic field transition between a radiative and a matter-dominated universe. The gravitational structure formation affects its evolution and energy spectrum. TheExpand
Cosmology with inhomogeneous magnetic fields
We review spacetime dynamics in the presence of large-scale electromagnetic fields and then consider the effects of the magnetic component on perturbations to a spatially homogeneous and isotropicExpand


Relativistic hydromagnetic wave propagation and instability in an anisotropic universe
Exact equations governing finite-amplitude wave propagation in hydromagnetic media are derived within the general theory of relativity. These equations are then used to discuss the stability of aExpand
A gauge-invariant analysis of magnetic fields in general-relativistic cosmology
We provide a fully general-relativistic treatment of cosmological perturbations in a universe permeated by a large-scale primordial magnetic field using the Ellis - Bruni gauge-invariant formalism.Expand
Generation of density perturbations by primordial magnetic fields
We study the generation and evolution of density perturbations and peculiar velocities due to primordial magnetic fields. We assume that a random magnetic field was present before recombination andExpand
Problems of Gravitational Stability in the Presence of a Magnetic Field
In this paper a number of problems are considered which are related to the gravitational stability of cosmical masses of infinite electrical conductivity in which there is a prevalent magnetic field.Expand
Ultra-high energy cosmic ray propagation in the local supercluster
Abstract We present detailed numerical simulations and analytical approximations of the propagation of nucleons above 1019 eV in the Local Supercluster, assuming that the ambient magnetic field isExpand
Extragalactic magnetic fields

Evidence for shock acceleration and intergalactic magnetic fields in a large-scale filament of galaxies ZwCl 2341.1+0000
Abstract We report the discovery of large-scale diffuse radio emission from what appears to be a large-scale filamentary network of galaxies in the region of cluster ZwCl 2341.1+0000, and stretchingExpand
On the origins of galaxies, galactic angular momenta, and galactic magnetic fields.
We show that if we assume the existence of a disordered cosmic magnetic field at recombination, then, provided the field varies on a comoving scale corresponding to a typical galactic mass, we canExpand
Dynamical state of superclusters of galaxies: do superclusters expand or have they started to collapse?
We investigate the dynamical state of superclusters in Lambda cold dark matter (�CDM) cosmological models, where the density parameter 0 = 0.2 0.4 and �8 (the rms fluctuation on the 8h 1 Mpc scale)Expand
