This animation is the result of solving a dynamical system one obtains from a simple model of a hurricane in which the stream function models a rigid motion in the "eye" of the hurricane and an Oseen vortex outside of it. The dynamical system is obtained from the stream function in the standard way and solved in Mathematica. Please see the whittemore1 Mathematica program.
