  • We consider the Cauchy problem to the Magneto-Hydrodynamics Equations (MHD) in R^3, and present specific criteria for which its corresponding energy equality holds. Specifically, we show that very weak solutions to the MHD equations (in the distributional sense) satisfy the energy equality, provided they belong to the space L^r(0, T; L^s(R^3)) with 2/r+2/s = 1 for s ≥ 4. Further, we also consider
    regularity criteria on the gradient of the solution to the MHD Cauchy problem. That is, we show very weak solutions to the MHD equations satisfy the energy equality if ∇u, ∇B ∈ L^(8s/(9s−12)) (0, T; L^s(R^3)), for 12/7 < s ≤ 12/5.
