Abstract: We discuss a recent result in which we investigate reversal and recirculation for the stationary Prandtl equations. Reversal describes the solution after the Goldstein singularity, and is characterized by spatio-temporal regions in which u>0 and u<0. The classical point of view of regarding the Prandtl equations as an evolution x completely breaks down. Instead, we view the problem as a quasilinear, mixed-type, free-boundary problem.
