The stagnation point flow over a linearly stretching or shrinking sheet is considered in the present study. The transformed ordinary differential equations are solved numerically. Dual solutions are possible for the shrinking case, while the solution is unique for the stretching case. For the shrinking case, a linear temporal stability analysis is performed to determine which one of the solution is stable and thus physically reliable.
