Professor Héctor Pérez-de-Tejada obtained a bachelor’s degree in science from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and later received his PhD degree from the University of Colorado (Boulder, Colorado). He has been a full researcher at the Institute of Geophysics of UNAM and participated in various academic functions first at the Ensenada (Baja California) campus and later at the Mexico City campus of that Institution. He was president of the Mexican Geophysical Union and has been a fellow of the National Research System in Mexico (level 3). Currently, he is the head of the Space Science Department of the Institute of Geophysics of UNAM, has participated in numerous research projects including as a guest investigator of the Pioneer Venus Orbiter mission of NASA at Venus, and has been involved in the analysis of plasma data of the Mars and Venus Express spacecraft of ESA. His academic activities have been related to studies of the interaction of the solar wind with planetary ionospheres and he has participated in many scientific publications where he has been the main author in most of them. He has been responsible for activities in the ionospheric sounder station near Mexico City and has been the supervisor of many graduate students at the Ensenada and at the Mexico City campuses of UNAM.

The contents of the book cover a wide variety of topics related to the analysis of the dynamics of vortices and describe the results of experiments, computational modeling and their interpretation. The book contains 13 chapters reaching areas of physics in vortex dynamics and optical vortices including vortices in superfluid atomic gases, vortex laser beams, vortex-antivortex in ferromagnetic hybrids, and optical vortices illumination in chiral nanostructures. Also, discussions are presented on particle motion in vortex flows, on the simulation of vortex-dominated flows, on vortices in saturable media, on achromatic vortices, and on ultraviolet vortices. Fractal light vortices, coherent vortex beams, together with vortices in electric dipole radiation, and spin wave dynamics in magnetic vortices are examined as well.
