This is a comprehensive account of the asymptotic theory of slender vortices with diffusion cores. Addressed to both graduate students and researchers it describes the mathematical model and its numerical analysis. The asymptotic analysis involves two length and two time scales. Consistency conditions and time invariance of moments of vorticity are given and applied to numerical solutions. The authors also describe consistency conditions between the large circumferential and axial velocity in the core.

Editorial Reviews

" indispensable learning and reference source for anyone wishing to study the motion of viscous vortices...permeating the book is the obvious insight and intuition of Lu Ting into vortex dynamics and his record for translating this insight and intuition into practical methods and solutions" Max D. Gunzberger, Virginia Tech
