An Introduction to Magnetohydrodynamics by P. A. Davidson

By P. A. Davidson

Magnetic fields are mostly utilized in to warmth, pump, stir and levitate liquid metals. there's the terrestrial magnetic box that's maintained by way of fluid movement within the earth's center, the sunlight magnetic box, which generates sunspots and sunlight flares, and the galactic box that impacts the formation of stars. This introductory textual content on magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) (the learn of the interplay of magnetic fields and accomplishing fluids) is meant to function an introductory textual content for complicated undergraduates and graduate scholars in physics, utilized arithmetic and engineering. the cloth within the textual content is seriously weighted towards incompressible flows and to terrestrial (as particular from astrophysical) purposes. the ultimate sections of the textual content, which define the most recent advances within the metallurgical functions of MHD, make the ebook of curiosity to expert researchers in utilized arithmetic, engineering and metallurgy.
