Vortex Ring Dynamics
When light travels from one medium into another, its trajectory changes. This phenomenon is called "refraction". What happens when a vortex ring travels from one medium into another? We published a paper in which we described the interaction of a vortex ring with a fluid density interface. A preprint can be found at http://arxiv.org/abs/0907.5462
