Abstract

In this note we modify and extend the work of Howison & King [12] to describe the situation of flow around a wedge of arbitrary angle in a Hele-Shaw cell. An ingenious complex- variable method due to Polubarinova-Kochina is used to construct an explicit solution to the zero-surface tension problem.
