Exact Analytic Solution of a Boundary Value Problem for the Falkner–Skan Equation
The Falkner–Skan equation, subject to appropriate physical boundary conditions arising from boundary layer theory, is exactly solved. The results obtained from this solution are compared with the numerical solution. The Blasius equation, subject to the same boundary conditions, is also solved exactly; the solution is compared with the earlier work on this equation. The analytic solution presented here agrees closely with the corresponding numerical results.
