Abstract : A new and novel method for studying the behavior of magnetohydrodynamic fields has been used to explore steady incompressible two-dimensional linearized fluid flow with finite viscosity. This method, based on the central idea of splitting the behavior of a flow field into independent modes of behavior, is then applied to the often-treated and well-known case of viscous incompressible flow over a semi-infinite flat plate immersed in an unbounded uniform stream.
