N2 - The non blow-up of the 3D ideal incompressible magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) equations is proved for a class of three-dimensional initial data characterized by uniformly large vorticity and magnetic field in bounded cylindrical domains. There are no conditional assumptions on properties of solutions at later times, nor are the global solutions close to some 2D manifold. The approach of proving regularity is based on investigation of fast, singular, oscillating limits and nonlinear averaging methods in the context of almost periodic functions. We establish the global regularity of the 3D limit resonant MHD equations without any restrictions on the size of the 3D initial data. After establishing the strong convergence to the limit resonant equations, we bootstrap this into the regularity on arbitrarily large time intervals for solutions of the 3D MHD equations with weakly-aligned uniformly large vorticity and magnetic field at t = 0. Bibliography: 36 titles.
