Theoretical and experimental results on the stability of three-dimensional boundary layers are presented. Emphasis is placed on instabilities in swept-wing flows although other types of 3-D flows are reviewed. Secondary instabilities in the form of vortex-vortex wave interactions are shown to dominate the transition process. These secondary instabilities produce unusual experimental observations that can only be explained by the theory.
