The aim of the present analysis is to examine the effects of slip boundary conditions and mixed convection flow of Williamson fluid over a stretching cylinder. The boundary layer partial differential equations are transformed into ordinary differential equations by using group theory transformations. The required ordinary differential equations are solved numerically by using implicit finite difference method known as Keller box method. The influence of dimensionless physical parameters on velocity and temperature profile as well as skin friction coefficient and local Nusselt number are presented graphically. Comparison has been made to the previous literature in order to check the accuracy of the method.

Keywords: slip boundary conditions; Williamson fluid; stretching cylinder; mixed convection; Keller box method
