Abstract

Abstract In this Letter, we propose a simple approach using HAM to obtain accurate totally analytical solution of viscous fluid flow over a flat plate. First, we show that the solution obtained using HPM is not a reliable one; moreover, we show that HPM is only a special case of HAM and its basic assumptions are restrictive rather than useful. We set ℏ = − 1 for the case of comparison of our results to those obtained using HPM. Afterwards, we introduce an extra auxiliary parameter and a straightforward approach to find best values of this auxiliary parameter which plays a prominent role in the frame of our solution and makes it more convergent in comparison to previous works.
