Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) is a fluid theory that describes plasma physics by treating the plasma as a fluid of charged particles. Hence, the equations that describe the plasma form a nonlinear system that couples Navier-Stokes equations with Maxwell's equations. This paper shows that the first-order system least squares (FOSLS) finite element method is a viable discretization for these large MHD ... read more
