We discuss an analytical proof of the existence of convex classical solutions for the (convex) Prandtl-Batchelor free
boundary problem in fluid dynamics. In this problem, a convex vortex core of constant vorticity is
embedded in a closed irrotational flow inside a closed, convex vessel in .
The unknown boundary of the vortex core is a closed curve along which
