A moment model for vortex interactions of the two-dimensional Euler equations. I. Computational validation of a Hamiltonian elliptical representation. (English) Zbl 0602.76026
The authors consider the evolution of finite uniform vorticity regions in an unbounded inviscid fluid. A perturbation analysis is performed based on the assumption that the regions are far away from each other and are nearly circular. Some computational comparisons with solutions obtained from the contour-dynamical representation of the two-dimensional Euler equations are reported. The authors then conclude, using numerical evidence, that their model is useful and quite accurate.
