Title: New Frontiers of Magnetized Turbulence in the Multiphase Interst

Abstract: New Frontiers of Magnetized Turbulence in the Multiphase Interstellar Medium

The current paradigm of the ISM is that it is a multiphase turbulent environment, with turbulence affecting many important processes. For the ISM this includes star formation, cosmic ray acceleration, and the evolution of structure in the diffuse ISM. This makes it important to study interstellar turbulence using the strengths of numerical studies combined with observational studies. I shall discuss progress that has been made in the development of new techniques for comparing observational data with numerical MHD simulations in the star forming molecular medium and in neutral gas as traced by 21 cm emission.
