### MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMIC FLOW OF NANOFLUID OVER PERMEABLE STRETCHING SHEET WITH CONVECTIVE BOUNDARY CONDITIONS

**ABSTRACT**

Analysis has been carried out for the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) boundary layer flow of nanofluid. The flow is caused by a permeable stretching sheet. Convective type boundary conditions are employed in modeling the heat and mass transfer process. Appropriate transformations reduce the nonlinear partial differential equations to ordinary differential equations. The convergent series solutions are constructed. Graphical results of different parameters are discussed. The behaviors of Brownian motion and thermophoretic diffusion of nanoparticles have been examined. The dimensionless expressions of local Nusselt and local Sherwood numbers have been evaluated and discussed.
