abstract = "The method of matched asymptotic expansions is applied to the axisymmetric boundarylayer equations in order to determine approximate solutions for free convection from a point source of buoyancy in the limit of large Prandtl number ( 1). In common with other types
of freeconvection boundary layers at large Prandtl number, there is an inner region in which the temperature decays to its farfield value, and a much wider, outer region in which the vorticity decays to zero. Unlike the other cases, the velocity is not of the same order of
magnitude in the two regions, but is larger in the inner region by a factor of order 1n(1/2) in the inner region, where is a root of 41n(1/2)=1/.",
