Similarity method for boundary layer flow of a non-Newtonian viscous fluid at a convectively heated surface

The similarity method is presented for the determination of the velocity and the temperature distribution in the boundary layer next to a horizontal moving surface heated convectively from below. The basic partial differential equations are transformed to a system of ordinary differential equations subjected to boundary conditions.
