Abstract

This doctoral thesis covers the question about the existence and evolution of magnetic fields in galaxies. The kinematic evolution of magnetic fields in isolated spiral galaxies as well as their self- consistent evolution in interacting spirals is studied with the help of high-resolution state-of-the-art numerical simulations. Also, implications of an interaction-driven amplification for the magnetic field evolution during the phase of hierarchical structure formation in the Universe are discussed.
