Image: Microscopic circulation

Microscopic circulation The microscopic circulation of a vector field at each point $\vc{x}$ captures the tendency for the vector field to circulate around a tiny closed curve centered around $\vc{x}$. This microscopic circulation is pictured as a bunch of small closed curves, where one should imagine that the small curves were much smaller than pictured.
