On a class of Stokes flows inside a corrugated boundary

A study is made of a family of steady two-dimensional Stokes flows stirred by an infinitesimal rotating cylinder (a line rotlet) inside a corrugated boundary. Parameters govern the position of the stirrer and the number and sharpness of ridges in the boundary. A solution is found in terms of a finite combination of elementary functions. It is demonstrated that the flow exhibits some interesting dynamical features such as peculiar bifurcations and homoclinic orbits.
