The numerical solutions are investigated for the forced convection heat transfer resulting from MHD flow of an electrically conducting Sisko fluid over an impermeable continuously stretching cylinder in its axial direction. The convective boundary conditions along with the viscous dissipation are considered. The governing equations are transformed using the local-similarity transforms and then solved numerically by using shooting technique. It is found from the analysis that the temperature is smaller in case of flow over a flat plate than that of cylinder. Further, influence of the pertinent parameters is more prominent for the shear thinningfluid compared to the shear thickeningfluid. The validation of present numerical results is affirmed by presenting a comparison with the series solutions obtained by the homotopy analysis method as well as some existing literature.
