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. After a similarity transformation, the arising system has been solved by homotopy analysis method (HAM). Convergence of the HAM solution is checked. It is found that dual solutions exist for this particular problem. The analytical results are validated using the Matlab bvp4c numerical routine.
