Transient flow of a relativistic radiating gas past a horizontal plate

The problem of unsteady flow of a relativistic radiating neutrino gas is studied by imposing a time-dependent perturbation on a basic flow. When the perturbation is small, the problem, which is ill-posed, is reduced to a well-posed spatial value problem for the transverse velocity and the temperature. Subsequently the axial velocity and number density may be obtained by straightforward integration with respect to time and imposition of the initial condition. The solution for the initial value problem is tackled by the Laplace transform technique and the results are discussed quantitatively.
