In revision for the Journal of Fluid Mechanics
It is sometimes assumed in the quantum literature that remote recoil is always negligible, i.e. that the Iordanskii force is the only recoil force. In the problems studied this is shown to be correct only in an extremely special and restricted set of circumstances. It happens that these are the same special circumstances in which the only relevant wave-refraction property is the Aharonov-Bohm topological phase jump. In most cases, other wave-refraction properties are also relevant and have comparable importance.
Remote recoil is also, contrary to an impression one might get from the geophysical/oceanographic literature, able to survive rapid rotation despite the phenomenon known as the Ursell `anti-Stokes flow'.
This has turned into quite an epic since the original submission to the Journal of Fluid Mechanics on 11 May 2018. The paper has undergone two major revisions, and was sent back to the journal on 3 March and 25 July 2019. I do think, however, that the readability of the paper has been enormously improved. The current preprint incorporates the very latest corrections and clarifications and I am very grateful indeed to the referees, and to other colleagues, for their many comments and suggestions.
