Abstract

This thesis will discuss several aspects of the Navier-Stokes system in cylindrical coordinates. We will highlight both the classical Donaldson-Sullivan solution and the recently discovered generalized Donaldson-Sullivan solution and will give their derivations. Our main focus will be on the following system and in particular the viscosity constant, v.
