  author={Philip and M Marcus},
We present a numerical method that allows us to solve the Navicr-Stokes equation with boundary conditions for the viscous flow between two concentrically rotating cylinders as an initial-value problem. We use a pseudospectral code in which all of the time-splitting errors are removed by using a set of Green functions (capacitance matrix) that allows us to satisfy the inviscid boundary conditions exactly. For this geometry we find that a small time-splitting error can produce large errors in the… CONTINUE READING
