# A new approach to the classical Stokes flow problem .1. Methodology and first-order analytical results

1997-02-17
The problem of determining the axisymmetric Stokes flow past an arbitrary body, the boundary shape of which can be represented by an analytic function, is examined by developing an exact method. An appropriate nonorthogonal coordinate system is introduced, and it is shown that the Hilbert space to which the stream function belongs is spanned by the set of Gegenbauer polynomials based on the physical argument that the drag on a body should be finite. The partial differential equation of the original problem is then reduced to two simultaneous vector differential equations. By the truncation of this infinite-dimensional system to the one-dimensional subspace, an explicit analytic solution to the Stokes equation valid for all bodies in question is obtained as a first approximation.

 A new approach to the classical Stokes flow problem .2. Series solutions and higher-order applications Taşeli, Hasan (1997-02-17) This is the second in a series of papers on the Stokes flow past an arbitrary axisymmetrical body. The truncated series solutions of the two infinite systems of simultaneous ordinary differential equations with variable coefficients are obtained for an arbitrary truncation order N. Each series solution together with logarithmic terms is shown to be convergent in the entire physical interval of interest. By the construction of the complete solutions of the systems, the corresponding hydrodynamical problem fo...
 On the consistency of the solutions of the space fractional Schroumldinger equation (vol 53, 042105, 2012) Bayin, Selcuk S. (2012-08-01) Recently we have reanalyzed the consistency of the solutions of the space fractional Schroumldinger equation found in a piecewise manner, and showed that an exact and a proper treatment of the relevant integrals prove that they are consistent. In this comment, for clarity, we present additional information about the critical integrals and describe how their analytic continuation is accomplished.
 Quantum mechanical computation of billiard systems with arbitrary shapes Erhan, İnci; Taşeli, Hasan; Department of Mathematics (2003) An expansion method for the stationary Schrodinger equation of a particle moving freely in an arbitrary axisymmeric three dimensional region defined by an analytic function is introduced. The region is transformed into the unit ball by means of coordinate substitution. As a result the Schrodinger equation is considerably changed. The wavefunction is expanded into a series of spherical harmonics, thus, reducing the transformed partial differential equation to an infinite system of coupled ordinary differenti...
 A model for the computation of quantum billiards with arbitrary shapes Erhan, Inci M.; Taşeli, Hasan (Elsevier BV, 2006-10-01) An expansion method for the stationary Schrodinger equation of a three-dimensional quantum billiard system whose boundary is defined by an arbitrary analytic function is introduced. The method is based on a coordinate transformation and an expansion in spherical harmonics. The effectiveness is verified and confirmed by a numerical example, which is a billiard system depending on a parameter.
 EXTENSION OF THE RESIDUAL VARIABLE METHOD TO PROPAGATION PROBLEMS AND ITS APPLICATION TO THE WAVE-EQUATION IN CYLINDRICAL COORDINATES AKKAS, N; Tokdemir, Turgut (Elsevier BV, 1992-08-03) Consider a partial differential equation with cylindrical coordinates describing a dynamic process in an infinite medium with an inner cylindrical boundary. If an analytical solution to the problem is not possible, then one resorts to numerical techniques. In this case it becomes necessary to discretize the infinite domain even if the solution is required on the inner cylindrical surface or at a limited number of points in the domain only. The residual variable method (RVM) circumvents the difficulty associ...
