The formation and stability of vortices in protoplanetary disks
DAMTP, Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Wilberforce Road, Cambridge CB3
We review vortex formation through instabilities associated with structural features in protoplanetary disks. We then describe the form of the generic parametric or elliptical instability associated with and, localized on, non circular streamlines. The effect of this type of instability on the potential accumulation of solid particles in the centre of such vortices has yet to be determined.
