Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) is the theory of the macroscopic interaction of electrically conducting fluids with a magnetic field. It is important many engineering problems, in geophysics and in astronomy. Much research has been devoted to the physical modeling and computational simulation of MHD-dominated processes, but there is still a shortage of general analytical, numerical, and computational methods. The speakers will discuss new approaches to the mathematical analysis, the numerical computation, and the control of MHD flows as they arise in various fields of application.
