The alpha effect is a prototype of non-diffusive turbulent transport phenomena that play important roles in understanding the formation of ordered magnetic fields from turbulent and chaotic motions. Examples include the large-scale magnetic field of the Sun, its 11 year cycle, as well as similar phenomena in other stars, accretion disks, and galaxies. Other related effects are the Lambda effect for explaining mean angular momentum transport in rotating bodies, as well as the effects of mean flows and mean magnetic fields on linear momentum transport in stars.

In recent years, this subject has attracted ever growing attention through close comparisons with laboratory and numerical experiments. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss recent progress and to highlight outstanding problems, clarify controversies, and to identify future possibilities for making progress. In this spirit, there will be ample opportunity for formal and informal discussions, in addition to contributed and invited talks.

The meeting will also provide an opportunity to celebrate Karl-Heinz Rädler's 75th birthday (although the actual date was already in May 2010).

The meeting is sponsored jointly by Nordita and the Astrophysical Dynamo ERC Project ..

Logistic issues

Nordita has reserved about 25 apartments for program participants. This is the preferred mode of accommodation, especially for our long-term participants.

How to get here? (this link has a description and several maps). The meeting takes place either in Nordita or in the main AlbaNova building, just next to the Nordita building.
