Abstract

We have made a numerical scheme of solving two fluid hydrodynamics near the λ point, which includes the mass density, momentum density, entropy density, and complex order parameter. In our model the normal fluid velocity vanishes at the boundaries due to finite viscosity. As preliminary examples we examine coexistence of a superfluid region and a normal fluid region in two space dimensions firstly in heat flow and secondly in gravity and heat flow. We observe formation of a vortex from a wall in the second case.
