Abstract
This paper investigates the influence of thermal conductivity and variable viscosity on the problem of micropolar fluid with suction or injection in presence of magnetic field. The fluid viscosity is assumed to vary as an exponential function of temperature and the thermal conductivity is assumed to vary as an exponential function of temperature. The governing equations are approximated by a system of non linear ordinary differential equations and are solved numerically by using shooting method. Numerical results are presented for the distribution of velocity, microrotation and temperature profiles within the boundary layer.
