Articles in this title are grouped in three areas: astrophysical plasma, solar plasma, and magnetospheric and interplanetary plasma. The first section covers issues associated with the magnetohydrodynamics of accretion disks and problems related to galaxies statistics, as well as the spectrum of a quasar seen through its disk, turbulence and waves amplification related to the viscosity and heating of accretion disks. The second section is devoted to problems associated with waves in solar spicules and solar wind and also to the still unresolved puzzle of the mechanisms of the solar corona heating. The third section treats important for our living with a star phenomenon as the interaction of the solar wind with the Earth's and other planets magnetospheres and related issues of space weather.
