Annotation The object of this book is to present the state of the art & to summarize the most recent advances in the structure & dynamics of vortices. This subject has indeed recently made some remarkable progress, particularly thanks to studies of turbulence, where coherent structures have been shown to play an important role. The book presents four general reviews on the experimental, numerical, theoretical & 2D-vortex aspects. In addition to these reviews, a series of articles describe a cross-section of recent work. Some of these studies are concerned with related fields, such as turbulence, aerodynamics, wakes, geophysics, mixing & particle dynamics.
