Nonclassical symmetry analysis of boundary layer equations. (English) Zbl 1264.76044

Summary: The nonclassical symmetries of boundary layer equations for two-dimensional and radial flows are considered. A number of exact solutions for problems under consideration were found in the literature, and here we find new similarity solution by implementing the SADE package for finding nonclassical symmetries.
