A simple one-dimensional model for the three-dimensional vorticity equation. (English) Zbl 0615.76029
A simple qualitative one-dimensional model for the, three-dimensional vorticity equation of incompressible fluid flow is developed. This simple model is solved exactly; despite its simplicity, this equation retains several of the most important structural features in the vorticity equations and its solutions exhibit some of the phenomena observed in numerical computations for breakdown for the three-dimensional Euler equations.
