Surface Wave Scattering by a Vertical Vortex and the Symmetry of the Aharonov-Bohm Wave Function

Abstract : Surface waves interacting with a vertical vortex are studied both analytically and experimentally. There are similarities as well as differences with the Aharonov-Bohm effect: among the former, a dislocation in the wave fronts that is proportional to the vortex circulation, and among the latter, a significant change in the symmetry of the scattered wave.
