I. Understand the dynamics of spectral energy
transfer in the inertial range of MHD turbulence. What determines
decorrelation times, anisotropy, and spectra? Is turbulence
in experiments generated by nonlinear coupling to large-scale
instabilities or linearly excited locally? Are there general
characteristics common to the interstellar medium and experimental
plasmas? How is MHD turbulence altered by Hall effects, reconnection,
and anisotropies arising from fields and flows.
II. Understand transport of energy and particles
that results from magnetic fluctuations. How does transport
depend on properties of magnetic fluctuations, such as stochasticity,
spectral composition, resonances? How does thermal conduction
by magnetic field affect the rate of collapse of galactic clusters?
How does particle transport by magnetic field affect cosmic
