Abstract:

In this talk we examine the three-dimensional Euler equations under the assumption that the velocity vector field is axisymmetric without swirl. We analyze properties of axisymmetric flows and, in particular, similarities to two-dimensional flows. We conclude by discussing existence of solutions to the Euler equations when velocity is axisymmetric.
