The ‘anti-dynamo’ theorems (ADTs) impose restrictions on the symmetry properties of the velocity and magnetic fields associated with sustained dynamo action in an electrically conducting body of fluid, such as the Earth's core. However, several of these ADTs depend on the assumption that the fluid flow is incompressible, and we show here that their validity… CONTINUE READING
