This paper presents results of experimental and theoretical investigations performed in the frames of the MAGO magnetohydrodynamic implosion conception. This approach suggests magnetized deuterium/tritium (DT)-plasma formation and preheating up to temperature 0.2-0.4 keV and subsequent adiabatic plasma compression by a magnetically driven liner. The DT-plasma formation is performed using a special plasma chamber MAGO where the magnetized plasma is accelerated in an annular nozzle up to ~200 cm/mus and heated due to various mechanisms including heating in arising collisionless shock waves. The subsequent plasma compression and bringing its characteristics to the ignition can be realized using powerful explosive magnetic generators. This paper discusses physical effects essential for the MAGO system, their relation with other plasma physics areas, as well as problems arising in the MAGO system
