Barotropic magnetohydrodynamics as a four-function field theory

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

15 Scopus citations


It will be shown that barotropic magnetohydrodynamics is equivalent to a fourfunction field theory, reducing the number of equations and variables needed to describe the theory from seven (the magnetic field B→ the velocity field v→ and the density ρ) to four. This field theory possesses a novel double infinite symmetry group.
