Abstract

Gyroviscous MHD in two dimensions is shown to be a Hamiltonian field theory in terms of a non-canonical Poisson bracket. This bracket is of the Lie-Poisson type, but possesses an unfamiliar inner Lie algebra. Analysis of this algebra motivates a transformation that enables a Clebsch + like potential decomposition that makes Lagrangian and canonical Hamiltonian formulations possible.
