Abstract Abstract. Numerical methods for free surface MHD flows have been developed and numerical simulations of the Richtmyer- Meshkov type instability in liquid jets in strong magnetic fields caused by an external energy deposition have been performed. Numerical results shed light on the evolution of the proposed Muon Collider target which will be designed as a pulsed jet of mercury interacting with strong proton beams in a 20 Tesla magnetic field. The formation and evolution of strong instabilities of the jet surface in the absence of the magnetic field have been demonstrated. We have shown that a uniform magnetic field significantly reduces amplitudes and velocities of surface instabilities and is able to stabilize the jet for all surface perturbations during times typical for the jet breakup at zero magnetic field. 1
