The study of flow problems in their generality is very difficult since real flows are three-dimensional, nonstationary, viscous with large Reynolds numbers, rotational, turbulent, sometimes also more-fase and in regions with a complicated geometry. Therefore, we use simplified, usually two-dimensional and non-viscous models. (The effects of viscosity are taken into account additionally on the basis of the boundary layer theory.) Here we give a survey of results obtained in the study of boundary value problems describing two-dimensional, non-viscous, stationary or quasistationary incompressible or subsonic compressible flows with the use of a stream function.
