In geophysical fluid dynamics, the screened Poisson equation appears in the shallow-water, quasi geostrophic equations. Recently, many attempts have been made to solve those equations on the sphere using different numerical methods. These include vortex methods, which solve a Poisson equation to compute the stream-function from the (relative) vorticity. Alternatively, the stream-function can be computed directly from potential vorticity (PV), which would offer the possibility of constructing… Expand

The problem of N-point vortices moving on the surface of a sphere is not as well understood as the corresponding planar problem, yet in some sense it is more general, since the planar problem can be… Expand

The article discusses the two-dimensional flow of an incompressible liquid between two infinitely close concentric spheres, due to an initial distribution of the vorticity differing from zero. The… Expand

We present a Lagrangian particle/panel method for geophysical fluid flow described by the barotropic vorticity equations on a rotating sphere. The particles carry vorticity and the panels are used in… Expand

There is, I think, something ethereal about i —the square root of minus one, which seems an odd beast at that time—an intruder hovering on the edge of reality.Expand
