  • The Soret and Dufour effects on the hydrodynamic flow of Casson fluid over a stretched surface were discussed.The relevant equations were first derived and then series solution was constructed by homotopic procedure. Results for velocity, temperature and concentration fields were displayed and discussed. Numerical values of skin friction coefficient, Nusselt and Sherwood numbers for different values of physical parameters were constructed and analyzed. Convergence of series solutions was examined.
