MHD Waves in Astrophysical Plasma

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 341)


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.
