Abstract

In an earlier paper the authors introduced a new version of the vortex method for three-dimensional, incompressible flows and proved that it converges to arbitrarily high order accuracy, provided we assume the consistency of a discrete approximation to the Biot-Savart Law. We prove this consistency statement here, and also derive substantially sharper results for two-dimensional flows. A complete, simplified proof of convergence in two dimensions is included.
