Magnetohydrodynamics in Astrophysics

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 341)


Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) is the simplest but sufficient approximation to describe many large-scale low-frequency phenomena in astrophysical plasma: regular and turbulent dynamo, plasma motions driven by strong magnetic fields, accreation disks, and relativistic jets.
