Superfluid Flow Around an Obstacle

Part of the Progress in Nonlinear Differential Equations and Their Applications book series (PNLDE, volume 67)


In this chapter, we address another issue related to superfluidity: the existence of a dissipationless flow induced by the motion of a macroscopic object in a superfluid. The nucleation of vortices corresponds to the breakdown of this dissipationless phenomenon.
