How Analogous is Generation of Vorticity and Passive Vectors (Magnetic Fields)?
A brief account is presented on analogies between the processes of evolution of vorticity and magnetic field and related problems starting from the very beginning and including the most recent results. The emphasis is made on essential differences as contrasted to similarities. This is seen already on a purely kinematic level which is the main theme of this communication.
