### Abstract

This paper deals with the flow induced by rotating disks. Such flows are
subject of a large number of contributions in the twentieth century.
Most of them are based on the famous von Kármán transform. In the last
three decades the applicability of this transform has been proved in
sophisticated experimental and theoretical investigations. The present
paper focuses on theoretical investigations treating a pair of disks
rotating concentrically. In addition to classical solutions given by
Batchelor and Stewartson, the problem of solutions being multiple,
unstable and even aphysical is briefly addressed. Furthermore, some
approaches dealing with moderate Reynolds-numbers are presented for
which the equations of motion are linearized starting from a known
creeping flow solution. A comparison of the results with those obtained
from the solution of the complete Navier-Stokes equation is carried out.
