Abstract: The Problem of laminar fluid flow which results from the stretching of a flat surface in a nanofluid has been obtained using the Adomian decomposition method. the model used for the nanofluid was presented in its rectangular form. the model is considered in a porous medium and incorporates the magnetic effect, thermal radiation effect and the effect of Brownian motion and thermophoresis. A similarity solution is prsented which depends on Darcy number, magnetic effect, inertia coefficient, Prandtl number, radiation, Lewis number, Brownian motion number and thermophoresis number. In the results presented graphically, it is observed that the Darcy number enhances the velocity, temperature and concentration profile of the fluid.
