The origin of the solar magnetic cycle
After summarizing the relevant observational data, we discuss how a study of ﬂux tube dynamics in the solar convection zone helps us to understand the formation of sunspots. Then we introduce the ﬂux transport dynamo model and assess its success in modelling both the solar cycle and its departures from strictly periodic behaviour.
