Abstract : Velocity fields are considered which are associated with a variety of flows and which may be described by perturbations of the Blasius solution. These are flows which, for example, because of localized mass transfer involve the initial value problem of boundary layer theory, flows with variable ratio of viscosity-density product, and flows with mass transfer. The perturbation solutions are presented in accord with the usual linearization procedures so that further applications for the determination of first-order effects c n be readily made. The results of such applications in several cases are compared to more accurate solutions. (Author)
