Flux T\ibe Formation Due to Nonlinear Dynamo of Magnetic Fluctuations Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract A nonlinear theory of magnetic fluctuations excited by random flows of a conducting fluid is proposed. A mechanism of amplification of magnetic fluctuations in the presence of a zero-mean field, proposed by Zeldovich, is applied to the theory of the magnetic fluctuations by using a nonlinear equation derived from the induction equation; the nonlinearity is associated with the Hall effect. The equation describes the evolution of the correlation function of the magnetic field and resembles the Schrodinger equation except for a …
