An Introduction to Magnetohydrodynamics: 25 (Cambridge Texts by P. A. Davidson

By P. A. Davidson

Magnetic fields impact many common and man-made flows. they're frequently utilized in to warmth, pump, stir and levitate liquid metals. there's the terrestrial magnetic box that's maintained through fluid movement within the earth's center, the sunlight magnetic box, which generates sunspots and sun flares, and the galactic box which impacts the formation of stars. this can be an introductory textual content on magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) - the learn of the interplay of magnetic fields and accomplishing fluids. This publication is meant to function an introductory textual content for complex undergraduates and postgraduate scholars in physics, utilized arithmetic and engineering. the fabric within the textual content is seriously weighted in the direction of incompressible flows and to terrestrial (as special from astrophysical) functions. the ultimate sections of the textual content additionally include an summary of the most recent advances within the metallurgical functions of MHD and so are suitable to expert researchers in utilized arithmetic, engineering and metallurgy.
