By Sébastien Galtier

Ninety-nine percentage of normal topic within the Universe is within the type of ionized fluids, or plasmas. The research of the magnetic houses of such electrically carrying out fluids, magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), has turn into a significant conception in astrophysics, in addition to in parts comparable to engineering and geophysics. This textbook deals a complete creation to MHD and its contemporary functions, in nature and in laboratory plasmas; from the equipment of the solar and galaxies, to the cooling of nuclear reactors and the geodynamo. It exposes complex undergraduate and graduate scholars to either classical and sleek recommendations, making them conscious of present learn and the ever-widening scope of MHD. Rigorous derivations in the textual content, supplemented by way of over a hundred illustrations and through workouts and labored strategies on the finish of every bankruptcy, offer an interesting and useful creation to the topic and an available path into this wide-ranging field.
