Solar and stellar dynamos – latest developments

Abstract

Recent progress in the theory of solar and stellar dynamos is reviewed. Particular emphasis is placed on the mean-field theory which tries to describe the collective behavior of the magnetic field. In order to understand solar and stellar activity, a quantitatively reliable theory is necessary. Much of the new developments center around magnetic helicity… (More)
