Course Objectives

Introduction to Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) course has been designed for students who are familiar with basics of electromagnetic theory and vector calculus. As the majority of undergraduate courses do not include fluid mechanics no prior knowledge of the subject is assumed.

MHD is essentially an extension of hydrodynamics to electrodynamics. This course is intended to serve as an introductory lectures for undergraduate and graduate students in physics, applied mathematics and engineering. This course covers definition of plasma, MHD basis, one and two fluid eqautions, energyu equation, Landau Damping and MHD waves.
