The recent progress in our understanding of the dynamics of muliti-phase interstellar medium (ISM) is reviewed. Non-linear perturbations (e.g., shock waves or time-dependent radiation field) lead to the interchange between warm phase and cold phase via thermal instability. Dynamical modelling of this phase transition dynamics is essential in describing ubiquitous turbulence in ISM and the formation of molecular clouds. A concept of magnetically multi-phase medium is introduced. Recent finding of the magnetic field amplification in the blast wave propagating in magnetized multi-phase ISM is providing a strong motivation for rapid acceleration of cosmic rays.
