Lectures in temporal order
Since the teaching term has already started, and since we won't fit into the Nordita seminar room as originally planned, we'll use a selection of according to a detailed Lecture Rooms Schedule; see also our general information about the various lecture halls at AlbaNova.
On this page we will list in more detail the content of the various lectures. In parenthesis we also give the time the lectures will be available. You are encouraged to use this opportunity to talk and discuss with them.
1. Flux transport dynamos and conveyer belt mechanism 2. Prediction of solar cycle using flux transport dynamos
1. Tuesday: The Madison Liquid Metal Dynamo Experiment: Introduction to the two vortex flow and experimental results 2. Wednesday: The role of turbulence in low Pm, liquid metal dynamo experiments. Numerical simulations of suppression of dynamos by turbulence, subcritical transitions, transition large-scale to small-scale 3. Thursday: The Madison Plasma Dynamo Experiment: plans, simulations, and opportunities.
1. Background observational material for planetary cores discussion of physical conditions inside planetary interiors 2. Convection-driven spherical shell numerical dynamos with rapid rotation 3. Convection and magnetoconvection in rapidly rotating systems 4. seminar type presentation, on 'Dipole generation and subcritical behaviour in the Geodynamo' (This will include a discussion on helicity production)
1. Stellar dynamos 2. Convection
1. Induction processes, experiments - Differential rotation, helicity, magnetic expulsion - Small scale aspects: spectra, alpha and beta effects 2. Some aspects of numerical simulations - An iterative procedure for low Rm - Taylor-Green simulations and findings 3. Dynamo observations 1 - The Bullard-von Karman experiment - Self-generation in the VKS2 experiment 4. Dynamo observations 2 - Dynamical regimes of the VKS 2 dynamos - Low dimensional features.
1. Introduction: electrodynamics of conducting moving matter and the dynamo problem 2. Mean-field electrodynamics 3. Mean-field magnetofluiddynamics 4. Mean-field aspects of the Karlsruhe dynamo experiment
1. Brief introduction to galactic astrophysics, with emphasis on interstellar gas, as required for the exposition of the properties, role and origin of magnetic fields at galactic scales. 2. Methods for the observational studies of interstellar and intergalactic magnetic fields will be reviewed, together with their results. It will be argued that dynamo action is required to maintain galactic magnetic fields, and simple dynamo models will be developed. 3. Analytical perturbation solution for the mean-field disc dynamos, comparison with numerical solutions. 4. Brief review of small-scale turbulent dynamos in application to galaxy clusters.
1. Basics of MHD and magnetic helicity 2. Magnetic helicity, Part I 3. Magnetic helicity, Part II 4. Mean field theory at high Rm
