There are significant differences between regular fluid turbulence and magnetohydrodynamic turbulence. We are constantly immersed in regular turbulence. We have a direct experience of it in our everyday life. Thus our development of models and theories of regular turbulence is strongly guided by experimental data and intuitions. Not so for magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence. Even though MHD turbulence is very widespread in the universe, we have practically no direct experience of it in our daily pursuits. Rather, we have to rely on numerical simulations and, to a lesser extent, observations and experiments. The purpose of this talk is to discuss what is currently known about the properties of magnetohydrodynamic turbulence.
