Laboratory observations and numerical simulations reveal that, in addition to monopoles, dipoles and tripoles, yet another stable coherent vortex may emerge from unstable isolated circular vortices. This new vortex is the finite-amplitude result of the growth of an azimuthal wavenumber-3 perturbation. It consists of a triangular core of single-signed vorticity surrounded by three semicircular satellites of oppositely signed vorticity. The stability of this triangular vortex is analysed through… CONTINUE READING
