%X The aim of the present paper is to discuss the flow and heat transfer in a second-grade fluid filling
a semi-infinite porous medium. The flow is induced by a permeable stretched surface in the
presence of a heat source. The surface is subjected to a power-law heat flux. The governing
problem is first modeled and then solved by employing the homotopy analysis method (HAM).
The influence of various parameters of interest have been examined by plotting graphs. Numerical
values of the local Nusselt number are also computed.
