Abstract : Some recent investigations about the boundary layer, with pressure gradient, in the incompressible fluid flow along a flat, smooth plate, are briefly summarized. The results of those investigations are compared with the experimental ones found by the author. Some considerations are drawn on the Tollmien-Schlichting theory of instability, the transition Reynolds number, the origin of the spots and the outline of the turbulent boundary layer. (Author)
