The purpose of this paper is to analyze the boundary layer flow of an Oldroyd-B fluid with Newtonian heating.
Series solutions are found by homotopy analysis method.
Temperature profile increases with an increase in conjugate parameter. Increase in parameter β and Prandtl number Pr decreases the temperature profile.
This work does not currently exist in the literature.
