Solutions for the boundary value problem over an infinite domain have been obtained by first transforming the two-dimensional laminar boundary layer equations into an ordinary differential equation through similarity variables. The governing problem is the two-parameter Falkner-Skan equation with β, the streamwise pressure gradient and γ the suction velocity. The closed form solution for β = -1 obtained earlier is rewritten, which is then generalized for generalβ. The same equation is also solved using method of stretching of variables. Different velocity profiles have been observed for both β and γ. The results from both approaches are compared with that of direct numerical solutions, which agree very well. © 2008 Elsevier Inc.
