Following a linear theory of magneto-thermo-elasticity with thermal relaxation, the propagation of Rayleigh waves in a semi-infinite body permeated by an uniform magnetostatic field parallel to the boundary surface is investigated. It is assumed that the elastic medium under consideration is a homogeneous, isotropic, electrically and thermally conducting one. The roots of the frequency equation are calculated numerically. The approximate solution for small thermoelastic and magnetoelastic coupling is obtained and compared with the exact solution.
