Initial framework and motivations of the investigation were based on the research projects developed by the Consortium for Magnetofluid Dynamics (University of Trieste, Italy) and the MIUR (Italian Ministry for Universities and Research) PRIN Research Program "Problemi Matematici delle Teorie Cinetiche e Applicazioni" (Mathematical Problems of Kinetic Theories and Applications), University of Trieste, Italy.
[15] have developed a finite element and network electrical simulation of rotating magnetofluid flow in nonlinear porous media with inclined magnetic field and Hall currents.
Essentially, magnetofluid or magnetic liquid is a kind of magnetorheological fluids (MRF), only its yield stress is lower than conventional magneto rheological fluid [5].

This paper generalizes previous analytic treatments and shows that the governing magnetofluid equations are equivalent to a nonlinear second-order partial differential equation for a single scalar function of position.
