Hoult, David P. (1962) Magnetohydrodynamic surface waves. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-03262008-082838
This is an experimental and theoretical study of deep water gravity-like waves which are induced in a liquid metal by a changing magnetic field. The dominant feature of such waves is the emission of Alfven waves from the free surface. A linearized theory is derived and compared with experiments.
