We consider propagation of gravitational waves in a magnetized plasma, using the linearized Maxwell-Vlasov equations coupled to Einstein's equations. A set of coupled electromagnetic-gravitational wave equations are derived that can be straightforwardly reduced to a single dispersion relation. We demonstrate that there is a number of different resonance effects that can enhance the influence of the plasma on the gravitational waves.
