Comment on "The sunspot as a self-excited dynamo"
Received 8 February 1999 / Accepted 15 April 1999
A recent paper claims that the well known Cowling `anti-dynamo' theorem is a "misconception", and that a simple axisymmetric sunspot model constitutes a counter example. We do not believe these claims to have been substantiated.
