Title  Introduction to modern magnetohydrodynamics 
Author(s)  Sebastien Galtier 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2016. 
Description  xv,268p. 
Abstract Note  Ninetynine percent of ordinary matter in the Universe is in the form of ionized fluids, or plasmas. The study of the magnetic properties of such electrically conducting fluids, magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), has become a central theory in astrophysics, as well as in areas such as engineering and geophysics. This textbook offers a comprehensive introduction to MHD and its recent applications, in nature and in laboratory plasmas; from the machinery of the Sun and galaxies, to the cooling of nuclear reactors and the geodynamo. It exposes advanced undergraduate and graduate students to both classical and modern concepts, making them aware of current research and the everwidening scope of MHD. Rigorous derivations within the text, supplemented by over 100 illustrations and followed by exercises and worked solutions at the end of each chapter, provide an engaging and practical introduction to the subject and an accessible route into this wideranging field.

Title  Magnetic helicity, spheromaks, solar corona loops, and astrophysical jets 
Author(s)  Paul M. Bellan 
Publication  New Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2018. 
Description  xxii, 630p. 
Abstract Note  Pedagogical in style, this book provides insights into plasma behavior valid over twenty orders of magnitude in both time and space. The book assumes that the reader has a basic knowledge of magnetohydrodynamics and explains topics using detailed theoretical analysis supported by discussion of relevant experiments. This comprehensive approach gives the reader an understanding of the essential theoretical ideas and their application to real situations.
The book starts by explaining the topological concept of magnetic helicity and then develops a helicitybased model that predicts the ultimate state towards which magneticallydominated plasmas evolve. The model predicts that no matter how messy or complicated the dynamics, a great range of plasma configurations always selforganize to a unique, simple final state. This selforganization, called relaxation, is a fundamental concept that unifies understanding of spheromaks, solar corona loops, interplanetary magnetic clouds, and astrophysical jets.
After establishing why relaxation occurs, the book then examines how relaxation occurs. It shows that relaxation involves a sequence of complex nonequilibrium dynamics including fast selfcollimated plasma jets, kink instabilities, magnetic reconnection, and phenomena outside the realm of magnetohydrodynamics.

Title  Relativistic astrophysics of the transient universe : gravitation, hydrodynamics and radiation 
Author(s)  Maurice H.P.M. Van Putten, Korea Institute for Advanced Study, Amir Levinson, Tel Aviv University 
Description  1 online resource (xx, 333 pages) : digital, PDF file(s) 
Abstract Note  In this decade, the transient universe will be mapped out in great detail by the emerging widefield multiwavelength surveys, and neutrino and gravitationalwave detectors, promising to probe the astronomical and physical origin of the most extreme relativistic sources. This volume introduces the physical processes relevant to the source modeling of the transient universe. Ideal for graduate students and researchers in astrophysics, this book gives a unified treatment of relativistic flows associated with compact objects, their dissipation and emission in electromagnetic, hadronic and gravitational radiation. After introducing the source classes, the authors set out various mechanisms for creating magnetohydodynamic outflows in winds, jets and blast waves and their radiation properties. They then go on to discuss properties of accretion flows around rotating black holes and their gravitational wave emission from wave instabilites with implications for the emerging gravitational wave experiments. Graduate students and researchers can gain an understanding of data analysis for gravitationalwave data

Title  Quantum plasmadynamics : magnetized plasmas 
Author(s)  Donald Melrose 
Publication  New York, Springer, 2013. 
Description  1 online resource 
Abstract Note  The covariant (4tensor) theory for relativistic quantum plasmas presented in the first volume is generalized to magnetized plasma in this second volume. The first four chapters are concerned with classical theory, including covariant forms of coldplasma, MHD and kinetic theory and the theory of gyromagnetic emission. The response 4tensor for an arbitrary distribution is evaluated, using both the forwardscattering and Vlasov methods, applied to a relativistic thermal distribution and used to discuss wave dispersion in relativistic magnetized plasmas. In the second half of the book, solutions of Dirac's equation for a magnetized electron are used to develop a magnetized version of QED. This form of QED is applied to gyromagnetic processes, the response of the magnetized vacuum and the response of a magnetized electron gas. The theory has a potentially wide range of applications, such as superstrong magnetic fields in pulsars, highpowered lasers and spindependence in a laboratory electron gas
