By P. A. Davidson

Magnetic fields impression many average and man-made flows. they're generally utilized in to warmth, pump, stir and levitate liquid metals. there's the terrestrial magnetic box that is maintained via fluid movement within the earth's center, the sun magnetic box, which generates sunspots and sun flares, and the galactic box which affects the formation of stars. this can be an introductory textual content on magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) - the examine of the interplay of magnetic fields and accomplishing fluids. This e-book is meant to function an introductory textual content for complicated 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 distinctive from astrophysical) functions. the ultimate sections of the textual content additionally comprise an summary of the most recent advances within the metallurgical purposes of MHD and so are suitable to specialist researchers in utilized arithmetic, engineering and metallurgy.
