Young stars II

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute

Abstract

Young solar-type stars exhibit strongly enhanced levels of magnetic activity. In addition, a complex set of behaviors arise from the presence of circumstellar accretion disks with their own magnetic fields, along with the interaction between the stellar magnetic field and the disk. I will review the observational evidence for the star-disk-magnetosphere paradigm, discuss angular momentum regulation, and point out current theoretical challenges.
