Özet

This paper is devoted to the study of a free-convective boundary-layer flow modeled by a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. We apply a modified variational iteration method (MVIM) coupled with He's polynomials and Pade approximation to solve free-convective boundary-layer equation. It is observed that the combination of MVIM and the Pade approximation improves the accuracy and enlarges the convergence domain.
