- The linear stability of the Batchelor (1964) vortex is investigated. Particular emphasis is placed on modes found recently in a numerical study by Khorrami (1991). These modes have a number of features very distinct from those found previously for this vortex, including exhibiting small growth rates at large Reynolds numbers and susceptibility to destabilization by viscosity. These modes are described using asymptotic techniques, producing results which compare favorably with fully numerical results at large Reynolds numbers.
