Axisymmetric flows driven by the injection of current; There is the terrestrial magnetic field that is maintained by fluid motion in the earth’s core, the solar magnetic field, which generates sunspots and solar flares, and the galactic field that influences the formation of stars.

With the new edition, readers will magnetohydrofynamics from additional material on MHD instabilities, planetary dynamos and applications in astrophysics, as well as a whole new chapter on fusion plasma MHD. Dynamics at low magnetic Reynolds number; 7. Fluid flow in the absence of Lorentz forces; Part II.
