Abstract

In this paper, the effects of suction/blowing and thermal radiation on a hydromagnetic viscous fluid over a non-linear stretching and shrinking sheet are investigated. A similarity transformation is used to reduce the governing equations to a set of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. The system of equations is solved analytically employing homotopy analysis method (HAM). Convergence of the HAM solution is checked. The resulting similarity equations are solved numerically using Matlab bvp4c numerical routine. It is found that dual solutions exist for this particular problem. The comparison of analytical solution and numerical solution for the velocity profile is an excellent agreement.
