Reduction and chaotic behavior of point vortices on a plane and a sphere
A.V. Borisov A.A. Kilin I.S. Mamaev
We offer a new method of reduction for a system of point vortices on a plane and a sphere. This method is similar to the classical node elimination procedure. However, as applied to the vortex dynamics, it requires substantial modification. Reduction of four vortices on a sphere is given in more detail. We also use the Poincaré surface-of-section technique to perform the reduction a four-vortex system on a sphere.

New periodic solutions for three or four identical vortices on a plane and a sphere

In this paper we describe new classes of periodic solutions for point vortices on a plane and a sphere. They correspond to similar solutions (so-called choreographies) in celestial mechanics.

Dynamics of two interacting circular cylinders in perfect fluid
A. V. Borisov I.S. Mamaev S. M. Ramodanov
In this paper we consider the system of two 2D rigid circular cylinders immersed in an unbounded volume of inviscid perfect fluid. The circulations around the cylinders are assumed to be equal in magnitude and opposite in sign. We also explore some special cases of this system assuming that the cylinders move along the line through their centers and the circulation around each cylinder is zero. A similar system of two interacting spheres was originally considered in the classical works of Carl and Vilhelm Bjerknes, H. Lamb and N. E. Joukowski.
    By making the radii of the cylinders infinitesimally small, we have obtained a new mechanical system which consists of two regular point vortices but with non-zero masses. The study of this system can be reduced to the study of the motion of a particle subject to potential and gyroscopic forces. A new integrable case is found. The Hamiltonian equations of motion for this system have been generalized to the case of an arbitrary number of mass vortices with arbitrary intensities. Some first integrals have been obtained. These equations expand upon the classical Kirchhoff equations of motion for $n$ point vortices.
