Abstract: A method of bicharacteristics [3] is used to derive a numerical method for solving multidimensional nonlinear Lundquist equations of magnetohydrodynamics. Actual numerical computations are carried out to solve two specific problems of magnetohydrodynamics--the magnetohydrodynamic initial-pressure problem and a problem of cylindrical waves in a transverse magnetic field due to a thin current-carrying wire perpendicular to the plane of the fluid.
