An analysis is carried out to study the steady two-dimensional stagnation-point flow and heat transfer from a warm, laminar liquid flow to a melting stretching sheet. The governing partial differential equations are converted into ordinary differential equations by similarity transformation, before being solved numerically using Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg method. Effects of Magnetic parameter, Radiation parameter, melting parameter, stretching parameter and Prandtl number on flow and heat transfer characteristics are thoroughly examined.
