Toroidal field instability and eddy viscosity in Taylor-Couette flows

By M. Gellert, G. Rüdiger and Key Words


magnetohydrodynamics – instabilities Toroidal magnetic fields subject to the Tayler instability can transport angular momentum. We show that the Maxwell and Reynolds stress of the nonaxisymmetric field pattern depend linearly on the shear in the cylindrical gap geometry. Resulting angular momentum transport also scales linear with shear. It is directed outwards for astrophysical relevan
