Solar magnetic activity: Topologically explored
Swedish Institute of Space Physics, Lund, Sweden
Solar magnetic activity is the driver of solar and space weather and with its eﬀects. It is therefore of great importance to be able to predict it. However, before being able to make predictions, we need to know the present state. Topological methods are presented that could give a more precise and complete description of the present; the over all, and the magnetic dynamo activity state of the Sun.
