Abstract : A perturbation solution is obtained for a free jet of an electrically conducting fluid in the presence of a transverse magnetic field. The solution is obtained in closed form to first order in the perturbation parameter, which is the ratio of the magnetic force to the inertia force of the jet. Both laminar and turbulent jets are considered. (Author)
