In Chapters 4–10 we have described in order the magnetic fields of the Sun, the Moon, planets, stars, the Milky Way, interstellar space and ex-tragalactic nebulae. The reader may have been deeply impressed by the ubiquitous permeation of the magnetic field into every corner of the cosmos and by its important role in various astrophysical phenomena, such as solar flares, prominences, sunspots, the solar wind, cosmic rays and the polarization of starlight. Abundant and colorful observational data naturally lead to deepgoing theoretical research. However, our rational knowledge is in general backward in comparison with our perceptional one. Until the present, reliable and mature theoretical recognition has been achieved only for some individual topics, and several of them will be introduced in this paper.
