This article addresses the boundary layer flow of a thixotropic fluid past an exponentially stretching sheet with heat transfer. The governing partial differential equations are reduced to an ordinary differential equation whose solution is found by the homotopy analysis method. The numerical values of the skin friction coefficient and Nusselt number are compared with available data.
