CATW01 - The complex analysis toolbox: new techniques and perspectives

A new family of exact solutions to the two-dimensional steady incompressible Euler equation is presented. The solutions comprise two point vortices of unit circulation – a point vortex pair – embedded in a smooth sea of non-zero vorticity of “Stuart-type”. The solution is one of the simplest examples of a rich and diverse array of similar global equilibria of the Euler equation identified by the authors. We also examine the point vortex limit of these new Stuart-embedded point vortex equilibria which results in a two-real-parameter family of smoothly deformable asymmetric point vortex equilibria in an otherwise irrotational flow.
