A numerical treatment for axi-symmetric flow and heat transfer due to a stretching cylinder under the influence of a uniform magnetic field, viscous dissipation and convective condition is presented. The governing partial differential equations are converted into nonlinear, ordinary, and coupled differential equations and are solved using Keller-Box method. The effects of important parameters such as magnetic parameter, curvature parameter, Prandtl number, Eckert number and the local Biot number are described through graphs. The numerical results are compared with the published data and are found to be in good agreement.
