Abstract: The existence of a family of steady vortex rings is established by a variational principle. Further, the asymptotic behavior of the solutions is obtained for limiting values of an appropriate parameter $ \lambda $; as $ \lambda \to \infty $ the vortex ring tends to a torus whose cross-section is an infinitesimal disc.
