Abstract
Streaky (S) perturbations (also called Klebanoff modes) in a Blasius boundary layer are examined in the vicinity of the leading edge singularity. Understanding the mathematical structure of S-perturbations in this limit requires to consider two eigenvalue problems, whose eigenfunctions exhibit two well separated scales in the normal direction: (i) $\zeta=y/\sqrt(x)\sim 1$ and (ii) $y=\zeta \sqrt(x)\sim1$, where $\zeta$ is the usual self similar variable in the boundary layer and $x$ is the streamwise coordinate. These eigenvalue problems were considered by Luchini (JFM 1996), who calculated some of their solutions. The remaining solutions are calculated and used to obtain approximations of the relevant solutions of streamwise evolving parabolic problem that provides S-perturbaions in this limit. Some of the results are also relevant in the restricted 2D problem.
