Abstract

In this paper, the effects of thermocapillarity and a magnetic field on the flow and heat transfer in a liquid film over an unsteady elastic stretching surface is analyzed. Similarity transformations are used to transform the governing equations to a set of coupled ordinary differential equations. The differential equations are solved analytically by the homotopy analysis method (HAM). The effects of various parameters in this study are discussed and presented graphically.
