Abstract

I consider two topics in MHD turbulence. First, I work out the theory of compressible MHD turbulence, including kinetic effects. I use this theory to understand features of interstellar scintillation that have hitherto been unexplained. Second, I work out the theory of imbalanced weak MHD turbulence.
