Forced convective heat and mass transfer flow of hydromagnetic, radiating and dissipative fluid over a porous nonlinear stretching sheet in the presence of non-uniform heat generation/absorption is investigated numerically. The system of nonlinear partial differential equations governing the physical problem is reduced to nonlinear ordinary differential equations by means of suitable similarity transformations and are solved numerically using Nachtsheim Swigert shooting iteration scheme together with fourth order Runge Kutta method. The effects of various physical parameters on velocity, temperature and concentration distributions are depicted graphically. The important findings of this study exhibited that the effect of non-uniform heat generation/absorption parameter and radiation parameter have significant role in controlling thermal boundary layer thickness and temperature. Numerical values of the skin friction coefficient, temperature and concentration at the wall are shown in a tabular form. A comparison is made with previously published data which results in good agreement.
