Vladimir Jankovic
Mathematical Faculty, Studentski trg 16, 11000 Belgrade, Serbia

We consider the following Generalized Aerodynamic Problem: Find a convex body of a given length and of a given maximal section, which has the minimal resistence when moving in a rarefied medium. We prove the existence of a solution for this problem.

Keywords: Convex body, rarefied medium, resistance.
