On the topology of three-dimensional steady flows of an ideal fluid
We shall consider the rotational steady flows of an incompressible inviscid fluid in a bounded region D. It will be assumed that the vectors of velocity and vorticity are not everywhere colinear. It will be shown that the region of flow D is divided by the critical ’Bernoulli surfaces’ into a finite number of cells, in each of which the streamlines are either closed, or else, everywhere they closely encircle toroidal surfaces.
