Abstract

This paper summarizes the present state of knowledge and understanding of the remarkable structure of the magnetic field of the one star where the structure can be observed. The discussion emphasizes several of the outstanding puzzles in the form of the field above and below the visible surface and provides a brief survey of present theoretical understanding, so far as it goes. Emphasis is given to the basic observational and theoretical work that remains before we have what might be called a theory of solar and stellar activity.
