We study the formation of vortices in a Bose-Einstein condensate BEC that has been prepared by allowing
isolated and independent condensed fragments to merge together. We focus on the experimental setup of
Scherer et al. Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 110402 2007 , where three BECs are created in a magnetic trap that is
