Therefore an implication of Gross-Pitaevskii equation [25] is that topologically quantized vortex could exhibit in astrophysical scale.
Rather than returning to the point of creation, it spontaneously decays into concentric quantized vortex rings, in a process known as a snake instability; see Fig.
