In this paper, the uniform flow of an incompressible, axi-symmetric, viscous fluid over a stationary impervious sphere with interface slip on its surface is considered. "Homotopy Analysis Method" (HAM) is used to solve the non linear momentum equations for stream function. To match with the uniform flow far away from the sphere, stream function is taken in terms of Gegenbauer polynomials. The solution obtained is found to be convergent and is seen to be in good agreement with the results…

Expansions at small Reynolds numbers for the flow past a sphere and a circular cylinder

This paper is concerned with the problem of obtaining higher approximations to the flow past a sphere and a circular cylinder than those represented by the well-known solutions of Stokes and Oseen.
