Dividing by Q gives the desired result. 4) to be solved recursively. , P2 ¼ z3 þ const:; so the start of the recursive construction is in order. Assume we have constructed polynomials through Pn recursively from Eq. 7). We wish to verify that Pnþ1 ; constructed from Eq. 7), and Pn satisfy Eq. 4). We shall also verify that the normalization factor, 2n þ 1; on the right hand side of Eq. 7) leads to the coefficient of the highest power in Pn being 1. Vortex Crystals 43 pffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffi We first use the result Eq.

Vortices are shown as solid dots; þ indicates the center of vorticity. the only viable conjecture, appears to be that linearly stable equilibria have an axis of symmetry. Including unstable equilibria opens up a Pandora’s box of possibilities, including many states that are not ‘round’ at all. Many of these states have the axis of symmetry (Section VII and Fig. 10) of the stable equilibria, but completely asymmetric equilibria have also been found for eight or more vortices (Fig. 8). There is at present no analytical understanding of such states.

10c). The asymptotic state is the centered hexagon. Courtesy of D. Durkin. In Fig. 7 we have reproduced some of the stable states identified and catalogued by Campbell and Ziff (1978). As in the earlier studies of floating magnets and other systems, and since most of their patterns look as though the vortices are arranged on concentric rings, they chose a convenient and visually suggestive labeling scheme, assigning to each vortex pattern a set of ‘ring numbers’. The resemblance to electron ‘shells’ in pictures of atoms found in elementary chemistry and physics texts would surely have pleased Kelvin!
