DY2W01 - Dynamos in planets and stars - similarities and differences

The global magnetic fields of astrophysical and planetary bodies are shaped by the spherical geometry of these systems. In this talk, I will describe new algorithms for solving nearly arbitrary equations in spherical geometry using the Dedalus framework. Users specify equations in plain-text using vector notation. Each variable is represented in a spectrally-accurate series expansion of spin-weighted spherical harmonics in the angular directions, and radially-weighted Jacobi polynomials in the radial direction. Dedalus can solve equations in spherical shells, as well as full balls (extending to r=0). I will provide examples of how to use the code, as well as benchmark problems and speed comparisons to similar codes.
