### Abstract

In this paper, the problem of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) boundary layer flow of an upper-convected Maxwell fluid over a rigid surface is investigated, numerically. The governing boundary layer equation is reduced into ordinary differential equation by a similarity transformation. The transformed equation is then solved numerically using an implicit finite-difference scheme known as the Keller-box method. The effects of the Deborah number and magnetic parameter on the velocity profiles and the skin friction coefficients are computed, analyzed and discussed.
