Evolution of magnetic fields in a transversely expanding highly conductive fluid
$dS^3\times E^1$ spacetime. The result is then Weyl transformed back into the Minkowski spacetime. In this case, the temporal evolution of the magnetic field exhibits a transmission between $1/t$ to $1/t3$ near the center of the collision. The longitudinal component of the magnetic field is found to be sensitive to the transverse size of the fluid. We also find the radial evolution of the magnetic field for both flows. The radial domain of validity in the case of SSF is highly restricted, in contrast to the Gubser flow. A comparison of the results suggests that the Gubser RMHD may give a more appropriate qualitative picture of the magnetic field decay in the quark-gluon plasma (QGP).
