Abstract We show that an infinite number of non-unitary minimal models may describe two dimensional turbulent magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), both in the presence and absence of the Alf 'ven effect. We argue that the existence of a critical dynamical index results in the Alf 'ven effect or equivalently the equipartition of energy. We show that there are an infinite number of conserved quantities in 2 D − MHD turbulent systems both in the limit of vanishing the viscocities and in force free case. In…

Conformal Models of Magnetohydrodynamic Turbulence
Following the previous work of Ferretti and Yang on the role of magnetic fields in the theory of conformal turbulence, we show that nonunitary minimal model solutions to two-dimensional
The Alf'ven Effect and Conformal Field Theory
Noting that two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamics can be modeled by conformal field theory, we argue that when the Alf'ven effect is also taken into account one is naturally lead to consider conformal
Stress Energy Tensor in LCFT and LOGARITHMIC Sugawara Construction
We discuss the partners of the stress energy tensor and their structure in Logarithmic conformal field theories. In particular we draw attention to the fundamental differences between theories with

Extended multiplet structure in Logarithmic Conformal Field Theories
We use the process of quantum hamiltonian reduction of SU(2)k, at rational level k, to study explicitly the correlators of the h1,s fields in the cp,q models. We find from direct calculation of the
