Abstract: This paper examines the effects of dynamical and resistive instabilities on magnetic redistribution of angular momentum within a star. It is tentatively concluded that if significant differential rotation survives in a stably stratified radiative zone over a stellar evolution time, then the poloidal field, cannot exceed an upper limit of order 3x 10" 2 G and is probably less than 10" 3 G. In the radiative core of the Sun B p is estimated to be at least of order 5xlO _2 G and probably 100 G or more. Values grea…
