Introduction:
This session will survey recent developments in vortex dynamics focusing on problems in which geometry, understood in a broad sense, plays an important role. Examples of such problems include flows defined on various manifolds as well as free-boundary problems arising in the dynamics of finite-area vortices. Geometric aspects are also important for applications such as superfluid turbulence and vortex-dominated flows in domains with complex boundaries. The topics of the session will be selected to emphasize the interaction between mathematical analysis and computations.
