The scaling symmetry operator for the system of PDEs (65) is calculated as [6]
The equations admit a scaling symmetry, translation symmetries, and an infinite parameter dependent symmetry.
By using one of the symmetries, namely, the scaling symmetry, the partial differential system was transformed into an ordinary differential system, which was then numerically integrated under the classical boundary layer conditions.
This system is nonlinearizable as it has only a scaling symmetry [X.sub.1] = v[[partial derivative].sub.x].
