Abstract
This technical note presents the derivation of an integral function credited
to Goldstein [2] in 1932 and recently employed in the authors’ previous work [1]
in Archive of Applied Mechanics. The particular form of this improper integral
is developed using techniques involving contour integration and the calculus of
residues.
Keywords: Bingham Number, Slip Flow, Inversion Theorem, Laplace
Transform.

1 Introduction
The problem of axially-symmetric slip flow generated by an infinite cylinder
undergoing impulsive motion was recently investigated by Crane and McVeigh
[1]. In accounting for momentum slip close to the cylinder wall, they obtained
the non-dimensional shear stress analytically in terms of the Bingham number,
Bn, in the cases where the cylinder moved under both uniform velocity and
acceleration. In denoting the non-dimensional variables of axial velocity, cylin-
der radius and time by U , R and T , respectively, they presented the unsteady
Navier Stokes momentum equation as follows:
 
∂U 1 ∂ ∂U
= R (1)
∂T R ∂R ∂R

## subject to, for T > 0

 
λ ∂U
UR=1+ =1+ , U → 0 as R → ∞ (2)
2 ∂R R=1+

## and, for T > 0:

U = 0 for R > 1 (3)
where λ is an empirically-derived slip-length parameter. In this work, the
Laplace transform of f (T ) is the function f¯(p); taken to be:
Z ∞
L {f (T )} = exp(−pT )f (T )dT = f¯(p)
0

Now, investigating radiating heat flow from an infinite region of constant ini-
tial temperature and bounded internally by a circular cylinder, Goldstein [2],
derived the transform:
 √ 
1 K0 ( p)
Ψ̄(p) = 1+ √ 0 √ √ (4)
p µ̂ pK0 ( p) − K0 ( p)

where K0 denotes the modified Bessel function of the second kind of order 0,
and in the work herein, Crane and McVeigh [1] specify µ̂ = 2λ. The associated
inverse is thus:
Z ∞
exp(−b2 T )
 
4 1
Ψ(T ) = db (5)
µ̂π 2 0 b (bJ1 + J0 /µ̂)2 + (bY1 + Y0 /µ̂)2

where J0 and J1 are cylindrical Bessel functions of the first kind of order 0 and
1, respectively and where Y0 and Y1 denote the cylindrical Bessel functions of
the first kind having order 0 and 1. Accordingly, Crane and McVeigh [1], give:

Bn = Ψ(T ) (uniform velocity) (6)
λ
and Z T

Bn = Ψ(T )dT (uniform acceleration) (7)
Tλ 0

The Derivation of a Goldstein Formula 31

## The integration in (8) is to be performed along a line, p = γ, in the complex

plane where p is a point having coordinates (x + iy). The real number, γ, is
to be so large that all singularities of the integrand lie to the left of the line
(γ-i∞, γ+i∞). Since p = 0 is a branch point of the integrand, the adjoining
Bromwich contour is chosen as the integration path (Fig. 1). This comprises

and since the only singularity, p = 0, of the integrand is not inside the con-
tour, the integral on the left is zero by Cauchy’s theorem. Further, it is readily
shown that, as R tends to infinity, the integrals along BDE and LN A vanish
in the limit. Along the inner circle, HJK, where p = exp(iθ), then, on taking
the limit as  becomes vanishingly small:

## Introducing the identities:

so that, along EH, as R → ∞ and  → 0:

and, on taking the complex conjugate, then:

Similarly, for the path KL, where p = xexp(−iπ) = −x.

Z  
db
iπ 0 b 2µ̂b (Y0 Y1 + J0 J1 ) + µ̂2 b2 (J12 + Y12 ) + J02 + Y02
(15)

Denoting the real and imaginary parts of the integrand in (14) by Re(A) and
Im(A), respectively; likewise, for KL in (15) respectively by Re(B) and Im(B),
so that (11) can be written:

and so, from (14) and (15), Re(A)=Re(B) and Im(A)=-Im(B); hence:

2 ∞ exp(−b2 t)

where

Introducing the identities:

and finally, following some algebra, Goldstein’s result (5) is recovered; namely:

exp(−b2 t)
