Abstract
Three complex variable circle theorems for studying the two-dimensional Stokes flows interior to a circular cylinder are presented. These theorems are formulated in terms of the complex velocities of the fundamental singularities in an unbounded incompressible viscous fluid. Illustrative examples are given to demonstrate their usefulness.
