The magnetohydrodynamics equations for the case of a cylinder linearized around an equilibrium state with vertical magnetic field reduce to a single singular second order partial differential equation where the time frecuency enters as a parameter. Although there could exist whole families of solutions depending on arbitrary values at the singularity, only one of them is physically correct. We analyse theoretically and numerically the problem and the physical consecuences of our results.
