Mathematical Aspects of Natural Dynamos

1st Edition

Emmanuel Dormy, Andrew M. Soward
August 19, 2019

Although the origin of Earth's and other celestial bodies' magnetic fields remains unknown, we do know that the motion of electrically conducting fluids generates and maintains these fields, forming the basis of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and, to a larger extent, dynamo theory. Answering the need...
