MHD Waves in Astrophysical Plasma
There are four different modes of magnetohydrodynamic waves in an ideal plasma with magnetic field. They can create turbulence, nonlinearly cascade in a wide range of wavenumbers, accelerate particles and produce a lot of interesting effects under astrophysical conditions.
