Delta-Type Solutions for the Non-Hermitian System of Induction Equations

International Journal of Theoretical Physics Aims and scope Submit manuscript


We study asymptotic solutions for the non-Hermitian system of induction equations, describing magnetic field in a highly conducting fluid. We suppose that the velocity field of the fluid has a jump near 2D surface in 3D space. We prove that the solution has δ-type singularity near this surface. We construct the complete asymptotic expansion of the solution and study the dependence of the weak limit on the profile of the velocity field.
