Nature of problem:
Simulation of the motion of topological defects in the early universe or tubes of magnetic flux in a superconductor.

Solution method:
Create an initial configuration representing two isolated vortices or time using the equations of motion.

The size of the lattice to be studied is limited by the amount of high speed memory available.
