In this paper, (MHD) boundary layer flow and heat transfer of steady two dimensional flow of an electrically conducting micropolar fluid over a permeable
stretching surface in presence of heat generation/absorption are discussed. By using similarity transformation, the arising governing equation of momentum and energy are transformed into coupled nonlinear ordinary differential equations, which are than solved by homotopy analysis method (HAM). The behavior of different physical parameters, namely, Prandtl number P r , micro rotation parameter N, Magnetic parameter M and Radiation parameter R d on the velocity and temperature profiles are depicted through graphically and tabular form in details. The present results are also compared with existing limiting solutions showing very good agreements with others.
