Turbulence and Magnetic Fields in Astrophysical Plasmas

Abstract:

We discuss the current understanding of the most basic properties of astrophysical MHD turbulence and trace the origins of the modern views and theoretical uncertainties to the ideas set forth in 1950s and 1960s by Iroshnikov, Kraichnan, Batchelor, Schlueter and Biermann. Universal aspects of the theory are emphasised. Two main astrophysical applications are touched upon: turbulence in the solar wind and in clusters of galaxies. These are, in a certain (very approximate) sense, two ``pure'' c...
