(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Derivation of "stokeslet"

Ok, so basically I cannot find ANYWHERE the step-by-step derivation of the free-space Green's function for the velocity field generated by a point force in a fluid (the Stokeslet).

I have not for the life of my got a clue why it somehow turns into a tensor along the way...?

help appreciated.
