    A particular strength of this book is that it provides a low threshold introduction to plasmas with an emphasis on first principles and fundamental concepts and properties. The discussion of plasma models is to a large extent limited to Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) with its . From the reviews: An Introduction to Plasma Astrophysics and Magnetohydrodynamics written by Marcel Goossens, ISBN Found in: Spaceflight, vol. 46, No.6 a?This is a book produced specifically for university students, but which has relevance to a much wider potential readership.

    Mean-Field Magnetohydrodynamics and Dynamo Theory provides a systematic introduction to mean-field magnetohydrodynamics and the dynamo theory, along with the results achieved. This book is comprised of 17 chapters and opens with an overview of the general concept of mean-field magnetohydrodynamics, followed by a discussion on the back.   An Introduction to Magnetohydrodynamics by P. A. Davidson, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(9).

    "Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) plays a crucial role in astrophysics, planetary magnetism, engineering and controlled nuclear fusion. This comprehensive textbook emphasizes physical ideas, rather than mathematical detail, making it accessible to a broad audience. ing, the book by Biskamp [13] provides a clear and comprehensive exposition, while the lectures by Schnack [14] o er a more gradual learning curve. For MHD of the solar atmosphere one can refer to Priest [15] as well as to Aschwanden’s book on the solar corona [16]. For an introduction to magnetohydrodynamics.
