abstract

  • We are concerned with the flow of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting fluid of constant properties past a semi-infinite rigid plate. The governing boundary layer equations were derived by Greenspan and Carrier [2] in 1959. Numerical solutions of these equations subject to different boundary conditions have been considered by Stewartson and Wilson [5], Wilson [8], and recently by Bramley [1].
