Magnetorotational dynamo chimeras. The missing link to turbulent accretion disk dynamo models?

11 Jul 2016 Riols A. Rincon F. Cossu C. Lesur G. Ogilvie G. I. Longaretti P-Y.

In Keplerian accretion disks, turbulence and magnetic fields may be jointly excited through a subcritical dynamo process involving the magnetorotational instability (MRI). High-resolution simulations exhibit a tendency towards statistical self-organization of MRI dynamo turbulence into large-scale cyclic dynamics... (read more)
