Abstract:

In this paper we describe a natural framework for the vortex dynamics in the parabolic complex Ginzburg-Landau equation in $R^2$. This general setting does not rely on any assumption of well-preparedness and has the advantage to be valid even after collision times. We analyze carefully collisions leading to annihilation. A new phenomenon is identified, the phase-vortex interaction, related to persistence of low frequency oscillations, and leading to an unexpected drift in the motion of vortices.
