The steady, incompressible flow of a micropolar fluid in 2 dimensions is considered. The Oseen linearization of the convective operator is introduced, and the associated problem for the fundamental solution is formulated. Solution of the fundamental problem is obtained in explicit form under a certain restriction on the physical parameters of the problem. Utilization of the fundamental solution in the investigation of general flow problems is discussed.
