Evolution of ring-shaped vortices. The images show the evolution of annular fluid eddies in two dimensions. Each row shows the evolution of separate vortex, with the left-most column showing the initial states. The ring-shaped region of fluid is swirling, while the remaining regions are quiescent. As the annular eddy evolves, its shape deforms into the patterns shown on the right-most column.
