Abstract : The fundamentals of radiant energy transfer and their effects on the gasdynamics are first discussed. The basic equations of radiation magnetogasdynamics are then derived. These equations are simplified under the assumption of local thermodynamic equilibrium. Two special cases have been worked out: One is the case of small mean free path of radiation and the other is the two dimensional steady flow in the presence of a straight opaque wall. In the latter case, further simplifications have been made by assuming boundary layer flow and gray gas approximation. (Author)
