Abstract: In this paper, we investigate the characteristic structure of the full equations of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and show that it satisfies the hypotheses of a general variable-multiplicity stability framework introduced by Métivier and Zumbrun, thereby extending to the general case various results obtained by Métivier and Zumbrun for the isentropic equations of MHD.
