Magnetohydrodynamics with Hydrodynamics, Volume 1 details various concepts in magnetohydrodynamics as it relates to hydrodynamics. The title first covers the methods and techniques appropriate to an elementary discussion of magnetohydrodynamics, and then proceeds to tackling the fundamental results of fluid dynamics. Next, the selection discusses the electromagnetic effects, along with the motion of a fluid in a uniform magnetic field. In the last chapter, the text talks about steady states and equilibrium configuration. The book will be of great interest to students, researchers, and practitioners of physics and engineering.
