6. Conclusions

Considering a sunspot as a self-excited magnetic-flux-tube dynamo proves to be a fruitful approach because it provides a) an explanation for the existence and the nature of the azimuthal electric current distribution that is required by the axial magnetic field, and b) information on the geometry of the flux tube at depth.

Clearly, much work remains to be done in this direction.
