Abstract: There has been considerable interest recently in the convergence properties of point vortex methods. In this paper, we define a vortex method using vortex multipoles and obtain error estimates for it. In the case of a nonuniform mesh, the rate of convergence of the dipolar algorithm is shown to be of higher order of accuracy than obtained with the simple vortex methods.
