Plane ovsyannikov vortex: Motion properties and exact solutions



The physical properties of ideal plasma flow described by the Ovsyannikov plane vortex are studied. The particle trajectories and magnetic lines are shown to be plane curves, and an algorithm for describing the motion in three-dimensional space is proposed. Some exact solutions of the submodel are obtained and studied.
