THROUGH AN ANNULAR JUNCTION
Abstract. Bifurcating Stokes flow between two coaxial
cylinders is studied. The flow is two-dimensional and is due
to one line source and two line sinks on the outer boundary.
It is found that separation of the streamlines can occur on the
outer boundary only if there is sufficient asymmetry, either in
the placement of the line sinks or their relative strengths.
