Abstract: Two dimensional Magneto Hydro Dynamic (MHD) and non-MHD laminar boundary layer flow of non-Newtonian fluid is analyzed. Three non-Newtonian fluid models for the stress-strain relationship Sisko fluid model, Prandtl fluid model and Williamson fluid model are considered for the different flow geometry (semi-infinite flat plate and semi infinite moving plate). Governing non linear partial differential equations (PDE) are transformed into non linear ordinary differential equations (ODE) using group theoretical methods. The quasi linearization method is then applied to convert the non linear ODE into linear ODE. The numerical solutions of the resulting linear ordinary differential equations are obtained using Finite Difference Method (method carried out with Microsoft excel and MATLAB coding). The graphical presentation of the velocity profile is generated in each problem. newline newline
