Dynamo theory

Isosurface, m = 1 magnetic mode,
flow along the Möbius strip
(Shukurov et al., Phys. Rev. E78, 025301, 2008)

Magnetic fields in turbulent and laminar flows of electrically conducting fluid

Fluctuation and mean-field dynamos; asymptotic solutions for linear and nonlinear regimes

Applications to galaxies, galaxy clusters, astrophysical jets and generic swirling flows, accretion discs, solar wind and the liquid core of the Earth
