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.

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