Additional recommended knowledge
where L is a typical length scale, μ0 is the permeability of free space, is the Alfvén speed, and η is the plasma resistivity. High Lundquist numbers indicate highly conducting plasmas, while low Lundquist numbers indicate more resistive plasmas. Laboratory plasma experiments typically have Lundquist numbers between 50 − 108, while in astrophysical situations the Lundquist number can be greather than 1020. Considerations of Lundquist number are especially important in magnetic reconnection.
