Abstract : In order to get similarity solutions of some problems of magnetogasdynamics the mechanism of similarity transformations is applied to the corresponding equations. Five cases are treated: three two-dimensional boundary layer theory cases (1) magnetic field perpendicular to the flow, unsteady case, (2) the same, but steady, (3) the steady problem with arbitrary magnetic field; a three-dimensional boundary layer problem, also with arbitrary magnetic field; and, without boundary layer approximation, the general three-dimensional unsteady MGD-equations.
