The discovery of coherent structures in turbulence has fostered the hope that the study of vortices will lead to models and an

understanding of turbulent flow, thereby solving or at least making less mysterious one of the great unresolved problems of

classical physics. Vortex dynamics is a natural paradigm for the field of chaotic motion and modern dynamical system theory.

The emphasis in this monograph is on the classical theory of inviscid incompressible fluids containing finite regions of vo ..
