This paper aims to explore the study of magnetohydrodynamic viscous fluid flow past on a stretching cylinder with nonlinear thermal radiation having gyrotactic microorganisms.
Appropriate transformations reduce the nonlinear partial differential equation to ordinary ones. Subsequent nonlinear equations are calculated to get convergent series solutions.
Fluid velocity declines for elevating values of magnetic field parameter. For larger values of curvature parameter near the cylinder temperature reduces.
To the best of the authors’ knowledge, magnetohydrodynamic boundary layer flow of viscous fluid by nonlinear stretching cylinder with nonlinear thermal radiation having gyrotatic microorganisms is not studied yet. The purpose is to study this.
