Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) is a fluid theory that describes Plasma Physics by treating the plasma as a fluid of charged particles. Hence, the equations that describe the plasma form a nonlinear system that couples Navier-Stokes with Maxwell's equations. We describe how the FOSLS method can be applied to incompressible resistive MHD to yield a well-posed, H$^1$-equivalent functional minimization.
