We present direct numerical simulations of two-dimensional decaying turbulence at initial Reynolds number $5\ifmmode\times\else\texttimes\fi{}{10}^{4}$ in a circular container with no-slip boundary conditions. Starting with random initial conditions the flow rapidly exhibits self-organization into coherent vortices. We study their formation and the role of the viscous boundary layer on the production and decay of integral quantities. The no-slip wall produces vortices which are injected into the bulk flow and tend to compensate the enstrophy dissipation. The self-organization of the flow is reflected by the transition of the initially Gaussian vorticity probabil...
