Résumé : The dynamics of relativistic quantum vortices were recently analysed in a model based on the nonlinear wave equation for a complex scalar field. These results are presented here in the context of relativistic pure superfluids and the existence of the correct non-relativistic limit is verified. Relativistic superfluid vortices are essentially different from their Newtonian limit-their equation of motion contains an acceleration term, absent in non-relativistic vortex dynamics. Still, it is shown that under certain conditions, the relativistic Euler equation and Helmholz's theorem are obtained as limiting cases.
