Abstract : The propagation of magnetohydrodynamic waves obliquely incident in a horizontally stratified ionosphere is discussed. The equations are cast in the coupled form suitable for computation by means of a high-speed modern computer, but no numerical results are obtained because of the prohibitive amount of work necessary to solve the equations in the case of oblique incidence and in the nongeometrical optics limit.
