Canuto, V.M., and G.J. Hartke, 1986: Convective turbulence with rotation and magnetic fields. Astron. Astrophys., 168, 89-104.

A method for calculating mean square velocity fluctuations, mean square temperature fluctuations, and convective flux for a turbulent rotating fluid with externally applied magnetic field is presented. A new spectral model of large scale turbulence is used which requires, as the sole ingredient, the growth rate of the instability generating the turbulence.

Results are presented for the convective flux with rotation and magnetic field for a range of parameters of astrophysical interest. The new formulae presented here can be viewed as an extension of the mixing length theory to include magnetic fields and rotation.
