Non-perturbative solution of free-convective boundary-layer equation by Adomian decomposition method. (English) Zbl 1197.76097

Summary: A free-convective boundary layer flow modeled by a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations is considered. The system is solved using the Adomian decomposition method (ADM) which yields an analytic solution in the form of a rapidly convergent infinite series with easily computable terms. The analytical solutions and the pertinent features of the illustrations show the efficiency of the method.
