    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


    After a general introduction to the vorton method, which is a vortex method resembling the 2-D point-vortex method, a set of equations describing dynamics of 3-D vortex singularities (vortons) is derived, avoiding the inconsistency in the derivation of other vorton equations which have been applied. Though inviscid, numerical simulations show reconnection phenomena.
