    Abstract

    The theory of nonlinear magnetoacoustic wave in the past has strictly been focused on purely compressive features of the mode. We show that a complete set of nonlinear equations necessarily includes both compressional and shear components of the magnetic field. These two turn out to be described by exactly the same nonlinear equations, which make the use of such a complete full set of equations far less complicated than expected. Present results should considerably enrich the theory of these waves by opening up new frontiers of investigation and providing some completely new types of nonlinear solutions.
