Lay Summary (English)

Lead
Lay summary
We plan to develop numerical methods for use in simulating magnetic field generation within a spherical, rotating shell within which is contained liquid metal. These methods will be used to simulate the way in which the magnetic field of the Earth has been generated by so-called "dynamo action".
