n=3 Viscous Simulation

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 
In this n=3 simulation, we introduce viscosity. Eventually, the viscosity combines with the magnetic field to drive the star to uniform rotation.  The quantity ν is the viscosity coefficient appearing in the magnetic Navier-Stokes equation.
