Abstract: It is established in this paper, under conditions more general than those used by Millikan, that the two-dimensional incompressible viscous flows past finite bodies cannot be equivalent to a variational problem of the Euler-Lagrange type. It has thereby been possible to obtain two harmonic functionals with a close relation to the Navier-Stokes equations.
