How do I draw an angular vector field containing a domain wall?

Intuitively, an angular vector field $$\theta(x)$$ such as the following would describe a domain wall between two vortices/strings of opposite winding number. I would like to draw this on a computer using Mathematica.

1. How do I do this? What vector field describes a configuration depicted above?
2. If it's not too much to ask, how do I model a time-evolving field which is constant at time $$t=0$$ and then as time evolves, the two vortices (fluxes) get created and separated to give the above configuration?

Edit:

I can draw a single vortex/string with the following code, for example. How do I introduce another vortex with a domain wall in between?

θnew[r0_] := ArcTan[r Sin[θ]/(r Sin[θ] - r0)]

field =
{FullSimplify[Cos[num (θ + α)] Cos[θ] + Sin[num (θ + α)] Sin[θ]],
FullSimplify[-Cos[num (θ + α)] Sin[θ] + Sin[num (θ + α)] Cos[θ]]} /.
num -> 1 /. α -> Pi/2 /. θ -> θnew[0.5]

VectorPlot[
Evaluate @ TransformedField["Polar" -> "Cartesian", field, {r, θ} -> {x, y}],
{x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1},
RegionFunction -> Function[{x, y}, x^2 + y^2 > .2]]

• Such fields can be visualized with StreamPlot and VectorPlot. Please look them up and show what you tried so far. – Szabolcs Feb 18 at 14:17
• @Szabolcs I am aware of those. Please see the edit above. – Nanashi No Gombe Feb 18 at 14:29
• What you show in the embedded in figure and what the code in your edit produces are very different. I do not see the relationship. – Szabolcs Feb 18 at 14:32
• @Szabolcs A vortex is a region around which a vector field has a winding number or a flux. What I have achieved so far is draw one such flux tube in Mathematica. The embedded figure shows two such fluxes or vortices. Away from the vortices, the field is constant. – Nanashi No Gombe Feb 18 at 14:37

Here's one way to produce graphics similar to what you show.

Manipulate[
StreamPlot[
Evaluate[
s/3 ( Grad[1/Sqrt[(x + s)^2 + y^2], {x, y}] -
Grad[1/Sqrt[(x - s)^2 + y^2], {x, y}]) + {0.2, 0}],
{x, -4, 4}, {y, -4, 4}, StreamMarkers -> "Pointer",
StreamPoints -> Fine],
{s, 0, 2}
] • That's brilliant. Thanks. – Nanashi No Gombe Feb 18 at 14:37
