Helicity dynamics of thin-core vortices

This summer I published an article in Science, together¬†with Prof. William Irvine and his group at the University of Chicago, discussing our results on the dynamics of helicity in a viscous fluid. Helicity is a scalar quantity that measures the intertwining of vortex lines in a fluid domain. In ideal (inviscid) fluids, helicity is conserved … continue reading »
