Influence of Magnetic Helicity in MHD

  • Simon Candelaresi (a1), Fabio Del Sordo (a1) and Axel Brandenburg (a1)

Abstract

Observations have shown that the Sun's magnetic field has helical structures. The helicity content in magnetic field configurations is a crucial constraint on the dynamical evolution of the system. Since helicity is connected with the number of links we investigate configurations with interlocked magnetic flux rings and one with unlinked rings. It turns out that it is not the linking of the tubes which affects the magnetic field decay, but the content of magnetic helicity.
