Universal short-wave instability of two-dimensional eddies in an inviscid fluid

. Physical Review Letters 57 (17): 2157--2159 (October 1986)

Abstract

It is shown that a broad class of two-dimensional vortices occurring in the flow of an incompressible, inviscid fluid are unstable to three-dimensional perturbations. At short wavelengths along the vortex axis the growth rate becomes independent of wavelength, and the eigenmode becomes concentrated near the center of the vortex.
