Dynamo theory is the study of how large scale magnetic fields can arise in bodies such as the Earth, Sun and stars, and it brings together researchers in such diverse subjects as geophysics astronomy and nuclear reactor technology. In this book are papers on the theory of dynamos, delivered at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge in September 1992, and these have been carefully brought together to form a unified presentation. Topics covered include: modelling of solar magnetic field generation, theoretical studies of the dynamics of the Earthts core, studies of the magnetic fields in galaxies, and papers on 0fast dynamost, the study of magnetic field regeneration in fluid of very high electrical conductivity. This volume represents the most comprehensive and up-to-date record of research into the theory of dynamos.This dynamo mechanism acts independently of the mean field dynamo up to the first-order approximation. We discuss here applications of the theory of the fluctuation dynamo to the Eartha#39;s liquid core. We suggest that intense flux ropesanbsp;...
