Magnetic fields in the multi-phase interstellar medium

​Andrew Fletcher, Newcastle University

The speaker's visit is supported by the Gothenburg Centre for Advanced Studies (GoCAS).


I will review what is known about the general properties of magnetic fields in the diffuse interstellar medium. New results will then be presented, addressing questions such as: is the mean, large-scale, magnetic field preferentially connected to a particular phase of the ISM? what effect does the generation of the mean-field have on ISM structure? what are the space and time correlations of random fluctuations in the ISM? how are these correlation scales related to observables?
