An analysis has been carried out to obtain the effect of axi-symmetric MHD slip flow and heat transfer of a viscous incompressible fluid along a stretching cylinder having free stream velocity. We have incorporated similarity transformations in our study to mould the partial differential equations corresponding to the momentum and heat into a set of non-linear ordinary differential equations. Using Runge-Kutta Fehlberg method, these equations have been solved numerically with shooting technique. In the present study, the effects of curvature parameter, slip parameter, Prandtl number, magnetic parameter, free stream parameter and temperature exponent parameter on flow and heat transfer characteristics have been discussed. The effect with variations of these parameters on velocity and temperature profiles has been investigated. We found that slip parameter and free stream parameter has a substantial effect on MHD fluid flow.
