Abstract

This chapter is devoted to the study of some discontinuities arising in real fluids. Namely, we first study the so-called vortex sheet, that is, a situation in which the fluid is irrotational outside a manifold of codimension one. In other words, the vorticity is concentrated on a curve or on a surface, in two or three dimensions, respectively, and in these manifolds the velocity field is discontinuous.
