Magnetic Tension and the Geometry of the Universe

Tsagkas, Christos

The vector nature of magnetic fields and the geometrical interpretation of gravity introduced by general relativity guarantee a special coupling between magnetism and spacetime curvature. This magnetogeometrical interaction effectively transfers the tension properties of the field into the spacetime fabric, triggering a variety of effects with profound implications. Given the ubiquity of magnetic fields in the universe, these effects could prove critical. We discuss the nature of the magnetic-field-curvature coupling and illustrate some of its potential implications for cosmology.
