An account is given of explicit solutions in terms of Mathieu function functions of the problem of two-dimensional subsonic compressible flow past oscillating airfoils. The results are applied to the calculation of three-dimensional corrections for the two-dimensional theory and the effect of the incorporation of the three-dimensional theory effect on the Mathieu function solution of the two-dimensional problem is shown.
