FIG. 1.

Smooth semianalytical multipole solutions on the rigid-lid -plane. (a) Tripole ; (b) quadrupole ; (c) pentapole ; (d) hexapole ; (e) heptapole . Left column, stream-function contours in a corotating frame of reference; central column, cross section of the vorticity fields along the dashed line shown in the left-column panel; right column, scatter graph—the computed vorticity–stream-function relation. All variables are nondimensional; stream-function contours are given at a 0.25 step. Straight lines in the scatter graphs represent the vs relation outside the separatrix; curved lines, same in the interior region.
