Turbulent transport of magnetic fields. IV  Damping of the mean field (B) in alphasquared dynamos with alpha proportional to COS Theta
Abstract
It is proven that the dynamo equation for the mean field (B) of the spherical alphasquared dynamo with alpha proportional to cos Theta and constant beta have only exponentially damped solutions, if the mean energy density (Bsquared) is nonzero and finite. The origin and interpretation of this phenomenon is reviewed.
