In the present problem a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) three dimensional Casson fluid flow past a porous linearly stretching sheet is investigated, introducing convective boundary condition at the surface where the thermal conductivity of the fluid varies linearly with respect to the temperature. Computations are performed for the velocity and temperature fields for different parameters. Spectral Relaxation Method (SRM) is used to solve the governing equations. The present results are compared with existing limited solutions, showing good agreement with each other and with different parameters. Graphs for the velocity and temperature are plotted to examine the behaviors with different parameters. The influence of the skin friction and local Nusselt number for different parameters is discussed and presented in tabular form.
