Turbulence and Magnetic Fields in Cosmological Simulations

Klaus Dolag

I will give an overview of cosmological simulations of galaxies and galaxy clusters including magnetic fields, focussing especially on galaxy scale simulations to highlight our current understanding (and limits) of the magnetic field amplification in galaxies and galaxy clusters. On larger scales I will especially emphasize our current understanding of non thermal processes and magnetic field evolution in galaxy clusters and introduce the new, 'Compass' simulation campaign for high resolution galaxy cluster simulations.
