The cycle of day and night and the cycle of seasons are two familiar natural cycles around which many human activities are organized. But is there a third natural cycle of importance for us humans? On 13 March 1989, six million people in Canada went without electricity for many hours: a large explosion on the sun was discovered as the cause of this blackout. Such explosions occur above sunspots, dark features on the surface of the Sun that have been observed through telescopes since the time of Galileo. The number of sunspots has been found to wax and wane over a period of 11 years. Although this cycle was discovered less than two centuries ago, it is becoming increasingly important for us as human society becomes more dependent on technology. For nearly a century after its discovery, the cause of the sunspot cycle remained completely shrouded in mystery. The 1908 discovery of strong magnetic fields in sunspots made it clear that the 11-year cycle is the magnetic cycle of the sun. It is only during the last few decades that major developments in plasma physics have at last given us the clue to the origins of the cycle and how the large explosions affecting the earth arise. Nature's Third Cycle discusses the fascinating science behind the sunspot cycle, and gives an insider's perspective of this cutting-edge scientific research from one of the leaders of the field.

This book provides an understanding of the physics at work in sunspots and solar coronal loops, and offers a new approach to Magneto-Fluid-Dynamics (or Magneto-Hydro-Dynamics).The book stresses the use of electric currents in Magneto-Fluid-Dynamics. As a rule, authors discuss magnetic field lines without referring to the required electric currents. It also stresses the importance of electric space charges inside conductors that move in magnetic fields.

Ongoing studies in mathematical depth, and inferences from `helioseismological' observations of the internal solar rotation have shown up the limitations in our knowledge of the solar interior and of our understanding of the solar dynamo, manifested in particular by the sunspot cycle, the Maunder minimum, and solar flares. This second edition retains the identical overall structure as the first edition, but is designed so as to be self-contained with the early chapters presenting the basic physics and mathematics underlying cosmical magnetohydrodynamics, followed by studies of the specific applications appropriate for a book devoted to a central area in astrophysics.

This book summarizes and highlights progress in Dynamical Systems achieved during six years of the German Priority Research Program "Ergotic Theory, Analysis, and Efficient Simulation of Dynamical Systems", funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). The three fundamental topics of large time behavior, dimension, and measure are tackled with by a rich circle of uncompromisingly rigorous mathematical concepts. The range of applied issues comprises such diverse areas as crystallization and dendrite growth, the dynamo effect, efficient simulation of biomolecules, fluid dynamics and reacting flows, mechanical problems involving friction, population biology, the spread of infectious diseases, and quantum chaos. The surveys in the book are addressed to experts and non-experts in the mathematical community alike. In addition they intend to convey the significance of the results for applications fair into the neighboring disciplines of Science.

There has been developing interest in the aspects of fluid mechanics and of magnetohydrodynamics that can be properly described as topological, rather than exclusively analytical in character. This book contains the proceedings of the IUTAM symposium on Topological Fluid Mechanics held at Cambridge UK, 13-18 August, 1989. Topics covered include the kinematic and dynamical problems in laminar and turbulent flows, as well as the range of problems that arise from the magnetohydrodynamics of highly conducting flows. The papers presented cover all approaches; theoretical, computational and experimental, and each paper has been edited by a member of the International Scientific Committee.

Continuum Theories In Solid Earth Physics

The material contained in this volume is united by common methods and ideas: the Earth's interior is treated as a continuum within the scope of classical physics. Such an approach is considered to be basically sufficient for the majority of the fundamental problems of the physics of the Earth's interior. Using modern methods of continuum mechanics and experimental data, it is possible to construct models of and theories about the dynamic processes taking place in the Earth's interior. The theories and models presented in this volume are supplemented by numerous applications to seismology (in particular earthquake physics), thermal convection of the Earth's interior, magnetic-field generation and a series of other geophysical problems. The theories and models concerning continuous media reviewed here are important for a sound understanding of the physical processes and dynamics of the Earth's interior. The authors have used the latest original results and present the elements of the theories in a concise, monographic form, referring to the abundant literature on the subject.

Dynamo theory is the study of how large scale magnetic fields can arise in bodies such as the Earth, Sun and stars, and it brings together researchers in such diverse subjects as geophysics astronomy and nuclear reactor technology. In this book are papers on the theory of dynamos, delivered at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge in September 1992, and these have been carefully brought together to form a unified presentation. Topics covered include: modelling of solar magnetic field generation, theoretical studies of the dynamics of the Earthts core, studies of the magnetic fields in galaxies, and papers on 0fast dynamost, the study of magnetic field regeneration in fluid of very high electrical conductivity. This volume represents the most comprehensive and up-to-date record of research into the theory of dynamos.
