MagIC

(numerical code to for fluid dynamics including dynamos)

MagIC is code to numerically simulate fluid dynamics solving Navier-Stokes equations for fluid affected by the Coriolis force, e.g., in a rotating spherical shell. It can also incorporate an equation for induction so as to implement some magnetohydrodynamics model features, such as for simulating dynamos.


The terms magic, MAGIC, and even MagIC have been used for other astronomical codes and devices, among them:
