   More details can be found in the enclosed abstract.
   The author shall greatly appreciate any suggestions  
   and/or critique to be sent to the address given in  
   the preprint. 
   Formulating the governing equations of fluid motion in 
   streamline coordinates allows one to avoid difficulties 
   associated with grid generation and to solve problems of 
   inverse design or problems with free boundaries.

   The  governing equations for steady inviscid two-dimen-
   sional gas motion are written in an orthogonal system of 
   independent coordinates consisting of the streamfunction
   and its orthogonal complimentary function. The result is
   a system of differential conservation laws, expressing con-
   servation of mass, momentum and energy. The conservative 
   finite volume approximation of these equations can be used  
   to calculate  flows with strong shocks. For the case of 
   potential velocity vector field, two different simplified
   formulations of the governing equations are derived.
   In order to compute purely supersonic flows, a conservative
   hybrid grid-characteristic scheme has been developed. To cal-
   culate transonic potential flows, two iterative algorithms
   have been implemented. 
   The calculated examples include supersonic flow over a wedge, 
   supersonic flow in an axisymmetric channel and in a jet  
   emerging from this channel, transonic flow in a nozzle and
   an axisymmetric bumpy channel.
