This investigation looks at the effects of thermal radiation on the magnetohydrodynamic flow of Casson fluid over a stretched surface subject to power law heat flux and internal heat generation. Conservation of mass, linear momentum and energy are used in the development of relevant flow equations. Series solutions for velocity and temperature are derived. Effects of embedded physical parameters on the velocity and temperature profiles are analyzed. Numerical values of skin-friction coefficient and local Nusselt number are examined.
