Abstract

Stellar magnetism is a crucial driver of activity, ionization, photodissociation, chemistry and winds in stellar environments. It therefore has an important impact on the atmospheres and the magnetospheres of surrounding planets. Modelling of stellar magnetic fields and their winds is extremely challenging, both from the observational and the theoretical points of view, and only recent ground breaking advances in observational instrumentation, as well as a deeper theoretical understanding of magnetohydrodynamic processes in stars enable us to model stellar magnetic fields and winds – and the resulting influence on surrounding planets – in more and more detail. Here we review what is known about the magnetic fields of cool stars, covering relevant techniques such as Zeeman Doppler Imaging (ZDI), field extrapolation and wind simulations, as well as relevant observational results.
