Abstract

In recent years the study of how magnetic fields interact with thermal convection in the Sun has made significant advances. These are largely due to the rapidly increasing computer power and its application to more physically relevant parameters regimes and to more realistic physics and geometry in numerical models. Here we present a survey of recent results following one line of investigations and discuss and compare the results of these with observed phenomena.
