A systematic study of the spectrum of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves in thermonuclear and astrophysical plasmas is presently undertaken at the FOM Institute for Plasma Physics. This study is based on the fact that the macroscopic waves and instabilities in both thermonuclear confinement machines and in astrophysical magnetic flux loops are described by the MHD equations.
