An analysis is carried out to study the Falkner–Skan flow and heat transfer of an incompressible, electrically conducting fluid over a wedge in the presence of variable viscosity and thermal conductivity effects. The similarity solutions are obtained using scaling group of transformations. Furthermore the similarity equations are solved numerically by employing Kellr-Box method. Numerical results of the local skin friction coefficient and the local Nusselt number as well as the velocity and the temperature profiles are presented for different physical parameters.
