Dust ion-acoustic (DIA) holes appear when warm ions follow a vortex ion distribution [137]. 24 2 Vortex Filaments and Where to Find Them Fig. 8: Vortex filaments are common features of the solar atmosphere. Here we see several erupting out of the surface. These can be several times longer than the Earth. 4 Concluding Remarks In this chapter, we have seen how vortex filaments exist in many areas of physical reality. Indeed, anywhere where there is a fluidic-type structure whether it is water, air, liquid helium or dilute alkali atoms, Cooper pairs in superconductors, or ultra-hot plasmas, vortex filaments appear.

5 Statistical and Fluid Mechanics The field of fluid mechanics is traditionally concerned with deterministic equations that model the flow of fluids given boundary conditions. The properties of fluids, however, may only be describable in a statistical sense, while exact configuration, composition, momentum, and energy are only known probabilistically. The philosophy behind applying statistical mechanics to fluids is that it can capture the broad features of a system without needing to understand the details.

The eddies can combine to form larger circulations, eventually forming hurricanes, possibly as a result of negative temperature states. Credit: NOAA tion of hurricanes. In the Atlantic many of these storms form as a result of eddies emerging from the Agulhas current (Fig.
