PART I: MAGNETOHYDRO DYNAMICS 
Lectures 110 Prof Alexander
Schekochihin MHD
equations: conservation laws in a conducting fluid; Maxwell
stress/magnetic forces; induction equation; Lundquist theorem, flux
freezing, amplification of magnetic field. MHD in a strong guide field:
MHD waves; highbeta and anisotropic limits and orderings;
incompressible MHD, Elsasser MHD, Reduced MHD. Static MHD equilibria,
forcefree solutions, helicity, Taylor relaxation. Energy principle.
Instabilities: interchange, Zpinch.
