Transport of vorticity in a magnetic Maxwellian viscoelastic fluid in the presence of suspended magnetic particles is considered here. Equations governing the transport of vorticity are obtained from the equations of magnetic fluid flow proposed by Wagh and Jawandhia in their 1996 study on the transport of vorticity in magnetic fluid. It follows from the analysis of these equations that the transport of solid vorticity is coupled with the transport of fluid vorticity. Further, we find that because of a thermo-kinetic process, fluid vorticity can exist in the absence of solid vorticity, but when fluid vorticity is zero then solid vorticity is necessarily zero. We also study a two-dimensional case.
