We study the existence of stationary classical solutions of the incompressible Euler equation in the planes that approximate singular stationary solutions of this equation. The construction is performed by studying the asymptotics of equation $${-\varepsilon^2 \Delta u^\varepsilon=(u^\varepsilon-q-\frac{\kappa}{2\pi} \log \frac{1}{\varepsilon})_+^p}$$ with Dirichlet boundary conditions and q a given function. We also study the desingularization of pairs of vortices by minimal energy nodal…

Helical vortices with small cross-section for 3D incompressible Euler equation
In this article, we construct traveling-rotating helical vortices with small cross-section to the 3D incompressible Euler equations in an infinite pipe, which tend asymptotically to singular helical
Desingularization of vortices for 2D steady Euler flows via the vorticity method
In this paper, we consider steady Euler flows in a planar bounded domain in which the vorticity is sharply concentrated in a finite number of disjoint regions of small diameter. Such flows are
Vortex Patches Choreography for Active Scalar Equations
The desingularization of the Thomsom polygon for the point vortex system, that is, point vortices located at the vertex of a regular polygon with N sides, is proposed and the study of the contour dynamics equation combined with the application of the infinite dimensional Implicit Function theorem and the well--chosen of the function spaces.
Gluing Methods for Vortex Dynamics in Euler Flows
A classical problem for the two-dimensional Euler flow for an incompressible fluid confined to a smooth domain is that of finding regular solutions with highly concentrated vorticities around N


The weak vorticity formulation of the 2-D Euler equations and concentration-cancellation
The weak limit of a sequence of approximate solutions of the 2-D Euler equations will be a solution if the approximate vorticities concentrate only along a curve x(t) that is Holder continuous with
Erratum to: N-Vortex Equilibria for Ideal Fluids in Bounded Planar Domains and New Nodal Solutions of the sinh-Poisson and the Lane-Emden-Fowler Equations
We prove the existence of equilibria of the N-vortex Hamiltonian in a bounded domain \({\Omega\subset\mathbb{R}^2}\) , which is not necessarily simply connected. On an arbitrary bounded domain we
Nonlinear desingularization in certain free-boundary problems
We consider a nonlinear, elliptic, free-boundary problem involving an initially unknown setA that represents, for example, the cross-section of a steady vortex ring or of a confined plasma in

AbstractThis paper concerns the existence of standing wave solutions of nonlinear Schrödinger equations. Making a standing wave ansatz reduces the problem to that of studying the semilinear elliptic
