Plasmas and MHD Shocks

1. Introduction In the jargon of hydrodynamic transport phenomena, a ‘shock’ is a discontinuity separating two different regions in an otherwise continuous medium (Kallenrode, 2004). It is associated with a disturbance moving faster than the rate of signal propagation in the environment, such as an airplane traveling at a speed greater than the speed of […]
