Compute the curl of velocity and take the magnitude of the vector.

wx = dw/dy - dv/dz wy = du/dz - dw/dx wz = dv/dx - du/dy

w = wx(i) + wy(j) + wz(k)

vorticity magnitude = sqrt(w.w) = sqrt( wx*wx +wy*wy +wz*wz)

la7low is on a distinguished road

where wij is the vorticity tensor defined as the antysymmetric part of the velocity gradient tensor. Its magnitude defined by:
and its the same as the magnitude of the vorticity vector as defined earlier.
