Vortices in complex scalar fields. (English) Zbl 0711.35024
The author studies the evolution, under a nonlinear Schrödinger or heat equation, of complex scalar fields which present vortices (that is, isolated zeros with non zero integer winding numbers). The following questions are examined: far field and core expansions, stability.
