Soret and dufour effects on hydromagnetic flow of Eyring-Powell fluid over oscillatory stretching surface with heat generation/absorption and chemical reaction

In this article we have investigated thermal-diffusion and diffusion-thermo effects on unsteady flow of electrically conducting Eyring-Powell fluid over an oscillatory stretching sheet by using convective boundary conditions. The number of independent variables in governing equations is reduced by using set of dimensionless variable. Series solution is computed by using homotopy analysis method. The effects various parameters of interest are illustrated graphically for velocity filed, temperature profile, concentration profile, skin friction, local Nusselt number and local Sherwood number and discussed in detail.
