Abstract : The progress in the field of boundary layer research in recent years is briefly surveyed. The following items are treated to some extent: stability and transition, turbulent boundary layers, three-dimensional boundary layers, boundary layer control, and boundary layers in hypersonic flow. In the concluding section the unsolved boundary layer problems for incompressible flow are reviewed. (Author)
