TRACERS, COHERENT STRUCTURES, AND FRACTIONAL KINETICS .

We consider chaotic dynamics of tracers in a system of point vortices and,
in parallel, the phase space topology of the vortices. There exist a
specific connection between coherent structures of the vortex system and
tracers transport , which is possible to describe in an analytical way and
confirm by simulations. The coherent structures occur as clusters of few
vortices , which impose the tracers kinetics of the fractional type. On
that way a characteristic exponent of the tracers dispersion can be
obtained from the first principles.
