Complexity Institute‘s insight:

“Previously, dynamos for large, highly conducting bodies such as the Sun would be overwhelmed by small-scale fluctuations in the magnetic field. Here, we have demonstrated a new mechanism involving a shear flow, which served to damp these small-scale variations, revealing the dominant large-scale pattern”, says co-author Steve Tobias, professor at the University of Leeds’ School of Mathematics."
