The laminar boundary layer in rotating compressible flow over an infinite rotating disk is considered for various ratios of disk-to-infinity rotation rates and temperatures. It is shown that a similarity solution exists for Td/T < (Ωd)2 and linearized solutions near this limit are presented. Numerical solutions for flow and temperature are given for representative values of the parameters, near and far from the limit.
