Abstract : The mechanism of the doublet at supersonic speeds is described using elementary physical reasoning insofar as is possible. The cause of the infinities introduced into the equations by the differentiation process across the Mach cone is discussed. In addition the physical process involved in passing from the fixed to the moving doublet is explained. Finally some applications of doublets to supersonic aerodynamic problems are included.
