Vortex dynamics in plasmas and fluids

The existence and dynamics of vortical structure in both homogeneous and inhomogeneous systems will be discussed. In particular the dynamics of monopolar and dipolar vortices in a plasma with nonuniform density and in a rotating fluid with varying Coriolis force is described. The role of vortical structures in connection with electrostatic plasma turbulence and the associated cross-field plasma transport will also be addressed.
