About the Authors
  • After a brief outline of magnetohydrodynamic theory, this introductory book discusses the macroscopic aspects of MHD turbulence, and covers the small-scale scaling properties. Applications are provided for astrophysical and laboratory systems. Magnetic turbulence is the natural state of most astrophysical systems, such as stellar convection zones, stellar winds or accretion discs. It is also found in laboratory devices, most notably in the reversed field pinch.

    • Unique introduction to, and state-of-the-art account of, MHD turbulence
    • Includes applications to important astrophysical topics such as solar wind, accretion disks and interstellar medium
    • Covers intermittency in turbulence, two-dimensional turbulence and supersonic turbulence
