Electromagnetotoroid structures as a propulsion mechanismAuthor(s): Mario J.Pinheiro
We introduce the concept of an electromagnetotoroid in astrophysics, and explore its role in polar jets. This model represents the onset of AbrahamÂÂÂÂs force driven by some external source, for example, the infall of gas towards a star. The AbrahamÂÂÂÂs force term is analogous to the Magnus force, and thus represents the formation of electromagnetic vortex structures in the local spacetime structure. In principle, the proposed toroidal field structure can also provide force to spaceship propulsion.
