Abstract

A special Hopf bifurcation in resistive magnetohydrodynamics can easily be identified by starting from a particularly suitable form of the linearised equations. The bifurcation can lead to nonlinear periodic oscillations. These oscillations can eventually be destroyed, which raises the question of the nature of the ultimate attractors.
