# Micropolar flow past a stretching sheet

TL;DR: In this paper, the flow of an incompressible, constant density micropolar fluid past a stretching sheet is studied using a globally convergent homotopy method in conjunction with a least change secant update quasi-Newton algorithm.

Abstract: This paper studies the flow of an incompressible, constant density micropolar fluid past a stretching sheet. The governing boundary layer equations of the flow are solved numerically using a globally convergent homotopy method in conjunction with a least change secant update quasi-Newton algorithm. The flow pattern depends on three non-dimensional parameters. Some interesting results are illustrated graphically and discussed.
