Abstract : The analysis of the low speed theory by the iterative method introduces the Neumann-Kelvin problem as the basic fundamental problem. This fact provides an additional importance of the N-K problem in the wave-making resistance calculation. In order to calculate the N-K problem, a method making use of the Hess & Smith program as a fundamental one is devised. The method is found to be useful to treat the line integral and give the lucid explanation for the N-K problem.
