Radiation and vortex dynamics in the nonlinear Schrödinger equation.


Sound emission produced by the interaction of several vortices in a two-dimensional homogeneous system obeying the nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation is considered. The radiation effect is explicitly computed in terms of assumed vortex motion. The results are applied to a simple test case of two corotating vortices. The prediction is compared to the… (More)
