Flow past a wedge is governed by the Falkner-Skan equation. This equation admits only numerical solution, which requires the application of the shooting technique. The program plots the velocity for various wedge angles. The result obtained is in agreement with figure 8-10 in page 352 of Deen's book (Analysis of Transport Phenomena, William M. Deen, OUP, 1998). The well-known Blasius equation appears as a particular case in this study. It represents the flow past a flat plate (parameter beta=0). Planar stagnation flow is also treated by the notebook (parameter beta=1).
