Abstract
Exact metrics on some totally geodesic submanifolds of the moduli space of static hyperbolic Nvortices are derived. These submanifolds, denoted as Sigma_{n,m}, are spaces of C_ninvariant vortex configurations with n single vortices at the vertices of a regular polygon and m=N−n coincident vortices at the polygon's center. The geometric properties of Sigma_{n,m} are investigated, and it is found that Sigma_{n,n−1} is isometric to the hyperbolic plane of curvature −(3 pi n)^{−1}. The geodesic flow on Sigma_{n,m} and a geometrically natural variant of geodesic flow recently proposed by Collie and Tong [“The dynamics of ChernSimons vortices,” Phys. Rev. D Part. Fields Gravit. Cosmol. 78, 065013 (2008);eprint arXiv:hepth/0805.0602] are analyzed in detail.
