Abstract: In this paper, small perturbations of a non-uniform two-dimensional flow of a compressible inviscid fluid are considered. It is shown that for a particular class of main stream Mach number distributions, which are characterized by a sonic line along the $ x$-axis, the linearized shear flow equation may be transformed into the generalized Tricomi equation. The mixed boundary value problem which results from considering perturbations generated by a two-dimensional camber surface is formulated and solved by utilizing the Wiener-Hopf technique.
