    One cool airfoil diagram is the one that explains why birds fly in a V:

    It means the lead bird and the 2 flanking birds do extra work, but the everage of each bird's total work is reduced by a huge percentage. And about boundary layers, are you talking about the fluid surface separating 2 mediums? There is a lot of info online about both these topics. Try Wikipedia.org first, and be sure to look at the references and external links at the end of each article. Then try google...
