We note that although the Kazanstev model is defined on the infinite domain r ∈ [0, ∞], it is anticipated (and verified below) that the periodic boundary conditions do not play a crucial role if it is ensured that the energy containing scales of the flow and the magnetic field are significantly smaller than 2π .
