Statistical characteristics of two-dimensional point vortex systems in positive and negative temperature states are examined by massive numerical simulations using a special-purpose supercomputer, MDGRAPE-3. Mathematical description of the system is identical to that of a collection of charged rods, i.e., a guiding-center plasma. The characteristics of the… CONTINUE READING
