Dynamical Systems and Nonlinear Control Theory
Vainchtein, Dimitri and Mezić, Igor (2002), "Control of vortex merger via elliptical vortex patch model", American Physical Society.
We discuss control of two-dimensional vortex merger using the elliptical vortex patch model. The objective is to control merger of elliptical vortex patches using a time-dependent vorticity source. We present two methods of control,
