The equations for development of the compressible laminar boundary layer over a yawed infinite cylinder are presented. For compressible flow with a pressure gradient the chordwise and spanwise flows are not independent. By use of the Stewartson transformation and a linear viscosity-temperature relation, a set of three simultaneous ordinary differential equations is obtained in a form yielding similar solutions. These equations are solved for stagnation-line flow for surface temperatures from zero to twice the free-stream stagnation temperature and for a wide range of yaw angle and free -stream Mach number.
