Abstract: We propose a one-dimensional model for the vorticity equation involving viscosity. Complex methods are utilzed in order to study finite time blow-up of the solutions. In particular, it is shown that the blow-up time depends monotoneously on the viscosity.

Keywords: vorticity equation, Hilbert transform, blow-up
