The linearized equations for the evolution of disturbances to four wall bounded flows are treated. The flows are plane Couette flow and plane Poiseuille flow, Hagen‐Poiseuille pipe flow, and the asymptotic suction profile. By looking at the vorticity it is proved simply that plane Couette flow and Hagen‐Poiseuille flow are linearly stable. Further study is made of the structure of the disturbance equation by the introduction of a special vorticity adjoint.
