Bifurcation of stationary vortex configurations

Julian I. Palmore

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We examine the dynamics problem of finitely many vortices in a circular disk and study stationary configurations of the vortices. For any fixed number of two or more vortices we prove that there are families of stationary vortex configurations in which bifurcation occurs. Sharp lower bounds on the numbers of stationary configurations are obtained by topological methods.
