Abstract: In his early work on mathematical models of turbulence, J. M. Burgers proposed a nonlinear system, coupling an ordinary and a partial differential equation, to simulate flow in a channel. The now well-known Burgers equation arose in his work from a simplification of this system. The original system has some interesting features not shared by the Burgers equation. This investigation establishes results on the stability of the ``laminar'' stationary solution and uniqueness of the nonstationary solution of the system.
