They reduce to Eq. 1) if we assume the unit normal to be independent of position. Since the sphere is a closed surface, the total vorticity of the flow on a sphere, that is, the integral over the surface of the sphere of the normal component of vorticity, must vanish. 1) embody this constraint in the sense that the sum of the circulations explicitly shown in Eq. 1) and a uniform background vorticity, which is not directly discernible in Eq. 1) but enters through the nature of the interaction term, satisfy the constraint of vanishing total vorticity (cf.

8). We should remark that although there are many co-rotating points to use in this algorithm, there are also usually symmetries that reduce the number of these points that are intrinsically different. Thus, in Fig. 9, we see that by symmetry there are only four intrinsically different co-rotating points that can be used in Eqs. 9). There are yet other ways of solving Eq. 1) for identical vortices. Consider, for example, the following recursion in which N new vortex positions {^za } are obtained from the current positions {za }: N X 0 1 z 2 zb b¼1 a z^a ¼ vffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffi 2ffi :  u  uX N  X N 1  u  0 t  z 2 zm  l ¼ 1 m ¼ 1 l ð7:10Þ The construct in Eq.

The equilateral triangle of identical vortices with an opposite vortex at the center will turn out to be the unique solution for n ¼ 2. In the general case, we return to the ideas of Section IV and set PðzÞ ¼ ðz 2 z1 Þ· · ·ðz 2 zNþ Þ; QðzÞ ¼ ðz 2 z1 Þ· · ·ðz 2 zN2 Þ: ð8:2Þ Here z1 ; …; zNþ are the complex positions of the positive vortices, and z1 ; …; zN2 the positions of the negative vortices, where N2 and Nþ are as in Eq. 1). The equations determining these positions in this case are Eq. 3) with zeros on the left hand sides.
