Abstract

Example solutions of a theory for stationary 3D non-potential solutions of the MHD equations (in the co-rotating frame of reference) are presented. As a first step we present solutions for the mathematically simpler case of a massive central cylinder, but the theory can also be applied to spherical bodies. The fundamental equation of the theory is linear and in the cylindrical case it can be solved using standard methods. Possible application is the structure of coronae of (fast) rotating stars.
