This note concerns a nonlinear differential equation problem in which both the nonlinearity in the equation and its solution are determined by other constraints. The question under consideration arises from a study of two-dimensional steady parallel-flows of a perfect fluid governed by Euler's equations and a free-boundary condition, when the distribution of vorticity is arbitrary but prescribed.
