Iordanskii force and the gravitational Aharonov-Bohm effect for a moving vortex

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

I discuss the scattering of phonons by a vortex moving with respect to a superfluid condensate. This allows us to test the compatibility of the scattering-theory derivation of the Iordanskii force with the Galilean invariance of the underlying fluid dynamics. In order to obtain the correct result we must retain (Formula presented) terms in the sound-wave equation, and this reinforces the interpretation, due to Volovik, of the Iordanskii force as an analogue of the gravitational Bohm-Aharonov effect.
