Stellar Dynamos

13th December 2004 to 17th December 2004

Organisers: David Hughes (Leeds), Paul Bushby (Cambridge) Steve Cowley (UCLA) and Steven Tobias (Leeds).

Supported by the London Mathematical Society, the Royal Astronomical Society and the Newton Institute

Conference Theme

This conference will focus on the fundamental problem of the generation of magnetic fields in stellar interiors. Invited speakers will review recent observations of stellar magnetic fields and rotation, together with theoretical and computational advances in mean field electrodynamics, MHD turbulence, differential rotation, and the relationship between the solar, stellar and galactic dynamos.

In addition to the invited presentations by leading figures, there will be an opportunity for further shorter contributed presentations.
