This paper is devoted to analyze computational simulation to study the partial slip and thermal radiation effects on the flow of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting fluid through an exponentially stretching surface with suction or blowing in presence of magnetic field. Using suitable similarity variables, the non-linear boundary-layer PDE are converted to ODE and solved numerically by Runge-Kutta fourth order method in association with shooting technique. Effects of suction or blowing parameter, velocity slip parameter, magnetic parameter, thermal slip parameter, thermal radiation parameter, Prandtl number, and Eckert number are demonstrated graphically on velocity and temperature profiles while skin friction coefficient and surface heat transfer rate are presented numerically. Moreover, comparison of numerical results for non-magnetic case is made with previously published work under limiting cases.
