Advances in the field theory of magnetohydrodynamics

Pp. 102-152 (51)

Asher Yahalom

Abstract

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.
