Vortices in nature are commonplace. Vortex phenomena extend from the microscopic (superfluids, ions) to the macroscopic (galaxies). This volume's comprehensive treatment of the physics of vortices includes the creation, motion, and destruction of vortices, and is intended to illustrate that the study of a vortex is a subject in its own right. Ranging from the atomic scale of (vortex combustion, vortices in Helium, and superfluids), to the atmospheric (hurricanes, tornadoes), oceanic (gyres, ocean circulation), and planetary (Jupiter's Red Spot, the Rings of Saturn, galactic motions), McCormack's approach will be appreciated by fluid dynamicists, mathematicians, physicists, and geophysicists working on a broad range of problems.
