Vortex collapses for the Euler and Quasi-Geostrophic Models

Abstract : This article studies point-vortex models for the Euler and surface quasi-geostrophic equations. In the case of an inviscid fluid with planar motion, the point-vortex model gives account of dynamics where the vorticity profile is sharply concentrated around some points and approximated by Dirac masses. This article contains three main results with several links between each other. In the first part, we provide two uniform bounds on the trajectories for Euler and quasi-geostrophic vortices related to the non-neutral cluster hypothesis. In a second part we focus on the Euler point-vortex model and under the non-neutral cluster hypothesis we prove a convergence result. The third part is devoted to the generalization of a classical result by Marchioro and Pulvirenti concerning the improbability of collapses and the extension of this result to the quasi-geostrophic case.
