A boundary layer flow of a non-Newtonian fluid in the presence of nanoparticles is examined. The flow is caused by a vertical stretching sheet. Convergence of the solution obtained is checked. The values of velocity, temperature, skin friction, and Nusselt number in the boundary layer are obtained.
