Abstract: The method of variation of reference [1] is developed afresh in a slightly different manner which enables the main principle used in [1] to be derived directly and also makes the actual calculations much simpler. It is shown how a variety of problems concerning aerofoils possessing minimal properties may be reduced to the solution of integro-differential equations which determine the mapping of the aerofoil onto a circular region. It is briefly indicated how the method may be extended to three dimensional flows.
