Dynamics of point vortices is generalized to complex, variable strengths (poles), and several exact solutions with optical analogues, notably Snell's law, are given.
|Item Type:||MIMS Preprint|
A very substantially revised version of this paper with a new title, "Dynamics of poles with position-dependent strengths and its optical analogues", is available as MIMS EPrint 2010.65.
