A simple solution of the problem of inviscid flow past two circular cylinders is presented. The two cylinders may be of different diameters and located at any distance from each other. The solutions of the two main cases, namely, when the flow is perpendicular to the center-to-center line and when the flow is parallel to it (tandem cylinders), lead to a solution of the problem when the flow is in an arbitrary direction.
