    The classical boundary layer problem is formulated in 13; terms of integral transforms. The transform equation generates, on expansion in the transform variable, momentum and energy integrals snrft Ligtier moment equations. A few examples are given to show that exact solutions can be cbtained from the transform equation. One of the two nonlinear transforms, appropriate to the boundary layer problem, generates displacement momentum and energy thicknesses and the other is a generalisation of dissipation integrals. Both the transforms are shown to be related to Laplace transforms under certain ccnditions and their behaviour at large values of the transform variable is governed by skin friction.
