Title: On the large-time behavior of two-dimensional vortex dynamics
Author: Iftimie, D

Lopes, HJN
Abstract: In this paper we prove two results regarding the large-time behavior of vortex dynamics in the full plane. In the first result we show that the total integral of vorticity is confined in a region of diameter growing at most like the square root of time. In the second result we show that if a dynamic rescaling of the absolute value of vorticity with spatial scale growing linearly with time converges weakly, then it must converge to a discrete sum of Dirac masses. This last result extends in scope a previous result by the authors, valid for nonnegative initial vorticity on a half-plane. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
