We derive the amplification of the cosmological magnetic field associated with forming gravitational structure. The self-similar solutions of magnetohydrodynamic equations are computed both in linear and nonlinear regimes. We find that the relatively fast magnetic field enhancement becomes substantial in the nonlinear phase.
