Abstract : The equation (phi subscript x/(subscript q) 2s) subscript x, + (phi subscript y/(subscript q) 2s) subscript y = 0, where q squared = (phi subscript x) squared + (phi subscript y) squared, 0 = or < s < 1/2, occurs in the theory of non-Newtonian fluids. It is proved that there exists a unique solution for this equation for the case of flow through an annulus. (Author)
