Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of
articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A
stellar magnetic field is a magnetic field generated by the motion
of conductive plasma inside a main sequence star. This motion is
created through convection, which is a form of energy transport
involving the physical movement of material. A localized magnetic
field exerts a force on the plasma, effectively increasing the
pressure without a comparable gain in density. As a result the
magnetized region rises relative to the remainder of the plasma,
until it reaches the star's photosphere. This creates starspots on
the surface, and the related phenomenon of coronal loops.
