Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD; also magneto-fluid dynamics or hydro­magnetics) is the study of the magnetic properties and behaviour of electrically conducting es of such magneto­fluids include plasmas, liquid metals, salt water, and word "magneto­hydro­dynamics" is derived from magneto-meaning magnetic field, hydro-meaning.

Transport Processes in Plasmas, Vol. 1: Classical Transport Theory focuses on problems on the transport of matter, pressure and velocity gradients combined with external electric, magnetic fields, and momentum and energy in a plasma submitted to temperature.

Current heating When an electric current is passed through the electrical conductive plasma, it generates heat in the plasma through its resistance like a cooker hotplate.

As this resistance decreases with increasing temperature, this method is only suitable for initial heating. The resulting neoclassical transport theory is developed for three cases of collisionality: Pfirsch-Schluter, plateau, and banana regimes, in decreasing order of collisionality.

The wide discrepancy with experimental results for electron heat conduction is shown, and this leads to a discussion of possible turbulent transport mechanisms.
