Abstract:

We explore similarities between the roles of the vorticity in 3D Euler Equations and the perpendicular gradient of the solution to 2D Quasi-Geostrophic Equations. In particular we compare level sets of 2D QGE with vortex lines of 3D Euler, and also compare the integral representations of the velocity and symmetric strain matrix for both equations.
