Abstract : A basic fluid flow wherein the vortex lines are stretched by the shear flow is defined. The smalldisturbances from this basic flow are considered and the resulting set of equations reduced to an ordinary linear second order differential equation. This differential equation is solved in various limiting cases. The case of vortex-line stretching is compared with the case when such stretching is absent. (Author)
