By P. A. Davidson

Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) performs a very important function in astrophysics, planetary magnetism, engineering and regulated nuclear fusion. This complete textbook emphasizes actual rules, instead of mathematical aspect, making it obtainable to a huge viewers. ranging from simple chapters on fluid mechanics and electromagnetism, it takes the reader all through to the most recent principles in additional complicated subject matters, together with planetary dynamos, stellar magnetism, fusion plasmas and engineering purposes. With the hot version, readers will take advantage of extra fabric on MHD instabilities, planetary dynamos and purposes in astrophysics, in addition to a complete new bankruptcy on fusion plasma MHD. the improvement of the cloth from first ideas and its pedagogical type makes this an amazing significant other for either undergraduate scholars and postgraduate scholars in physics, utilized arithmetic and engineering. undemanding wisdom of vector calculus is the single prerequisite.
