Abstract
In this paper, the steady boundary layer stagnation point flow and heat transfer of a micropolar fluid flowing over an exponentially stretching sheet is investigated. The solution of the problem is obtained numerically using the Keller-box method and the series solutions are obtained with the help of homotopy analysis method (HAM). Comparisons of both the solutions are presented. At the end the effects of important physical parameters are presented through graphs and the salient features are discussed.
