Summary: [For the entire collection see Zbl 0604.00007.]
The asymptotic behavior of the fundamental solution of a linearized system associated with the three dimensional exterior stationary problem of a compressible viscous flow past an obstacle is investigated. It is proved that if the flow at infinity is subsonic, the behavior as \(| x| \to +\infty\) is essentially the same as that of an incompressible flow and if it is either transonic or supersonic, it is crucially influenced by compressibility along the Mach cone.
