An attempted asymptotic series solution in terms of inverse powers of the axial distance for the incompressible laminar wake far behind a very slender cylinder breaks down at an early stage. The PLK method is applied to the problem and yields a uniformly valid asymptotic solution. The method of approach used should be of interest to researchers in fluid mechanics concerned with the solution of singular perturbation problems, while the results should be of interest to those involved in wake studies.
