Abstract

This update on the problem of vortex nucleation in superflows through micro-apertures follows the recent reviews of the subject by Zimmermann [1] and one of the authors [2]. Recent developments of the model of vortex nucleation involving a vortex half-ring are assessed with an emphasis on the statistical properties of the critical velocity transition. The occurrence of collapses and multiple slips is then discussed in relation with the problem of vortex nucleation.
