Advances in the field theory of magnetohydrodynamics
Pp. 102-152 (51)
It will be shown that barotropic magnetohydrodynamics is equivalent to a
four function field theory, reducing the number of equations and variables
needed to describe the theory from seven (the magnetic field B the velocity
field v and the density p )to four function field theory possesses a novel double
infinite symmetry group. Non trivial topologies and the differences between
stationary and non-stationary flows will be given detailed attention.
