• GROUP SYMMETRY ANALYSIS FOR MHD BOUNDARY LAYER FLOW WITH DIFFUSION AND CHEMICAL REACTION PAST A STRETCHING

R. M. Darji*, M. G. Timol**

Abstract


The electrically conducting magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) laminar incompressible boundary layer for the Newtonian fluid past a stretching sheet with diffusion and chemical reaction using group symmetry method is investigated. The symmetry groups admitted by the governing boundary value problem are obtained. Particular attention is paid on the deductive group technique which provides the general group transformation and hence similarity solution of the problem. Finally, with the use of the entailed similarity variables the problem is transformed into a boundary value problem of ODEs and is solved numerically using collocation method.

Keywords


Group symmetry, boundary layer flow, similarity solution.
