Abstract

An analytical model of three-dimensional Euler flows which exhibits a finite-time singularity is given. The singularity in vorticity occurs at a velocity field null (stagnation point) which lies on the line joining two vorticity field nulls. It is shown that the vorticity diverges inversely with time.
