Topological Dynamics in the Physical and Biological Sciences

An MHD extension of the hydrodynamical solver EULAG [1] has been recently shown to simulate regular magnetic cycles and dynamo action, unprecedented in global simulations of solar magneto-convection [2, 3]. The lecture will highlight the mathematical and numerical features distinguishing EULAG from standard anelastic solar codes, including generalized time-dependent coordinate transformation and nonoscillatory forward-in-time integration schemes. The results illustrate advantages of the implicit large-eddy-simulation (ILES) approach, together with evidence that treatment of small scales may be critical for the production of cyclic behaviour and regular polarity reversals in this type of global simulations.
