Abstract: It is shown here that the mixed initial-boundary value problem for the Euler equations for ideal flow in bounded domains of $ {R_3}$ has a unique solution for a small time interval. The existence of a solution is shown by converting the equations to an equivalent system involving the vorticity and applying Schauder's fixed point theorem to an appropriate mapping.
