Abstract : Let L, R, Y be arbitrary real constants. A wing with fixed span which produces lift L, roll moment R, yaw moment Y and which has minimal induced drag D is wanted. This problem arises in airplane engineering. It is solved by means of Prandtl's lifting line theory combined with computation. (Author)
