method of obtaining it. The results are in harmony; but the fact is not immediately apparent, inasmuch as Stokes expresses the motion by means of the velocity-potential, whereas here we have employed the stream-function.
That the subtraction of £«r2 makes (10) an harmonic function shows that the series multiplying r2 can be summed.    In fact

In considering the character of the motion denned by (11) in the immediate vicinity of the origin we see that if a < |TT, the term in r2 preponderates even when n= 1. When a \TT exactly, the second term in (11) and the first term under £ corresponding to n = 1 become infinite, and the expression demands transformation. We find in this case

The maximum value occurs when r = '592.    At the point r = '592, Q = ITT, the fluid is stationary.
A similar transformation is required when a = 3?r/2.
When a = TT, the boundary becomes a semicircle, and the leading term (n = 1) is

The motion expressed that which would ensue if the rotation of the vessel were suddenl; A related problem was solved a long time since by Stokes*, who c the irrotational motion of fluid in a revolving sector.    The solution problem is derivable from (10) by mere addition to the latter of i/r0 for then ^ + ^r0 satisfies V2 (^r + ^r0) = 0 ; and this is perhaps th«
