Fluid Dynamics and Dynamos in Astrophysics and Geophysics
ISBN: 0849333555 | Publisher: CRC | 16 March, 2005
The increasing power of computer resources along with great improvements in observational data have led to rapid advances in astrophysical fluid dynamics in recent years. Bringing together geophysicists, astrophysicists, and experimenters, this book reviews the current status of the field and provides balanced coverage of all three of these areas. Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), including MHD turbulence, the dynamo problem, and some unique laboratory experiments, receives the particular attention of many of the book's international contributors, and throughout the book, the authors illustrate the symbiotic relation between theory and observation.
