The Origin and Structure of the Magnetic Fields of the Chemically Peculiar Stars

  • David Moss (a1)

Abstract

Rival theories for the origin of the magnetic fields present in the CP stars are discussed, particular attention being paid to the claims of the ‘contemporary dynamo’ and ‘fossil’ theories. The internal structure of the field as predicted by calculations consistent with the fossil theory is discussed at length. It seems that current time dependent models can now give a coherent picture of the fields of the CP stars according to the fossil theory. Dynamo theory modelling has not been developed in such detail. As yet neither the theoretical predictions nor the observational material seem to be detailed enough to allow a decisive comparison between the theories.
