Description

This classic review presents some topics in hydromagnetic dynamo theory in the astrophysical context of large magnetic Reynolds number. An account is given of certain qualitative aspects of a turbulent dynamo operating through nonuniform rotation of a conducting medium subject to random motions with helicity. Such dynamos might be at work in planetary cores, stellar envelopes, galaxies and the gaseous accretion disks around X-ray sources.
