This workshop is a satellite event of the Topological Dynamics in the Physical and Biological Sciences programme at the Isaac Newton Institute.

Topics
The topology of magnetic fields is very much a hot topic at the moment with the realisation that knowledge of the topology reveals not only the basic structure of the magnetic field, but is also crucial in identifying the location of energy release sites, and in determining the rate and amount of energy-release from the system. A six-month programme Topological Dynamics in the Physical and Biological Sciences, 16 July – 21 December 2012, www.newton.ac.uk/programmes/TOD is to be held at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI) in Cambridge. This ICMS Workshop is a 'satellite' workshop contributing to this Programme.

The Workshop will focus on research exploiting topological and geometrical concepts in the study of the morphology and evolution of magnetic fields in astrophysics and plasma physics.

Magnetic fields are all-pervasive in astrophysics. Such fields generally have non-trivial topology. This results through various mechanisms such as dynamo action within stars which generates and maintains the magnetic field, and also the movement and stressing of the magnetic field by plasma motions that can lead to extremely complex topologies in, for example, stellar coronae. These fields play a crucial role in relation to many observed phenomena in the sun and the solar atmosphere, and similarly in stars and in the interstellar medium. Likewise, the magnetic field is the crucial ingredient in toroidal fusion plasma containment devices like the Tokamak, for which the simplest magnetostatic equilibria are helical in character. More complex equilibria may exhibit current sheet singularities, the site of potential resistive instabilities.

This workshop will invite contributions within these fields including particularly the following topics, with focus in each case on the influence of the field topology:

  • Field relaxation under topological constraints;
  • Dynamo action associated with chiral turbulence, in planetary and solar contexts;
  • Eruption of solar/stellar fields through chromospheres and coronae;
  • Braiding of the coronal field due to footpoint motion;
  • Spontaneous field discontinuities (current sheets) and coronal heating;
  • Magneto-rotational instability (MRI) in accretion discs, and associated transport of angular momentum;
  • Magnetostatic equilibria in toroidal fusion plasmas; their stability and containment characteristics.

The focus of this ICMS Workshop will be on these aspects of magnetohydrodynamics, with topological dynamics being the theme linking it with all other aspects and activities of the Isaac Newton Institute TOD Programme (see www.newton.ac.uk/programmes/TOD/ws.html for other TOD workshops). This Workshop will hopefully stimulate activity in a fascinating class of mathematical problems in the area of:

  • Topology (knot theory, link invariants, Kontsevich integral, contact topology)
  • Differential Geometry (integral invariants, diffeomorphism groups, contact geometry)
  • Dynamical Systems (formation of ergodic regions, chaos, entropy, bifurcations )

Those have great current relevance, not only in astrophysics and fusion plasma physics but also in condensed matter physics, and micro‐scale biology.
