Equations and laws of vortex motion.- Vortex filaments.- Models of vortex structures.- Stability and waves on columnar vortices.- Dynamics of vortex filaments.- Dynamics of two-dimensional vortex structures.- Experimental observation of concentrated vortices in vortex apparatus.
From the reviews: "The book contains a comprehensive overview and authoritative coverage of the wide field of concentrated vortices observed in nature and technique. It familiarizes readers with the methods for research of their kinematics and dynamics. ... this book also covers recent achievements in the fields of stability analysis, waves on vortices and vortex breakdown. Scientists working in the areas of applied mathematics, and in theoretical and/or computational fluid dynamics will benefit from this book, which may serve both as a reference monograph and a textbook."
