Galactic dynamo simulations

Abstract
Abstract

Recent simulations of supernova-driven turbulence within the ISM support the existence of a large-scale dynamo. With a growth time of about two hundred million years, the dynamo is quite fast – in contradiction to many assertions in the literature. We here present details on the scaling of the dynamo effect within the simulations and discuss global mean-field models based on the adopted turbulence coefficients. The results are compared to global simulations of the magneto-rotational instability.
