Abstract

We respond to the questions raised in the preceding Comment [K. O'Neil and L. J. Campbell, Phys. Rev. A 47, 2966 (1993)]. We explain why our statement "vortex temperature is always positive" is equivalent to the "opposite" statement in the Comment: "vortex temperature is always negative," and why we viewed the negative temperature states as paradoxical. We discuss also the notion of temperature for the limit case of infinite number of vortices.
