Abstract. A point particle approximation to the classical dynamics of well separated
the abelian Higgs model is developed. The asymptotic static intervortex
potential is calculated and used to model type~II vortex scattering. A velocity
dependent interaction Lagrangian for critically coupled vortices is derived,
and reinterpreted geometrically to obtain a conjecture for the asymptotic form
of the metric on the two-vortex moduli space, as used in the geodesic
approximation. The scattering of critically coupled vortices is calculated.
