Abstract

The theoretical understanding of slow, axi-symmetric, steady, creeping motion of viscous fluids, in the cylindrical geometry ${(\rho,\phi,z)}$ denoting the cylindrical coordinates of a material point in standard notations can be completed by determining the Stokes's stream function $\psi(\rho,z)$ (independent of ${\phi}$, because of axisymmetry), which is known (see [4]) to satisfy a fourth order partial differential equation (PDE) as given by (see also the Appendix):
