Abstract : The transverse hydromagnetic ionizing wave is studied theoretically without the assumption of infinite conductivity behind the wave. Finite gas pressures are included, as well as a variable degree of ionization behind the wave. The electric field in front of the wave is employed as a parameter. Jump conditions across the wave are solved. It is shown that finite pressure and variation of the degree of ionization are important in some regions. (Author)
