Thanks for the IC's help.

Can you check this question out? You might be able to help.

Consider u_t + (v.grad)u = 0 , where grad = upside down triangle, and v is a vector, dotted with the grad symbol.

where v = (-ax, ay) represents 2D stagnation point flow and u = u(x,y,t). Obtain a solution of the Cauchy problem given that u = u0(x,y) at t = 0

(u0 is read as "u naught")
