The differential equation F''' + AFF'' + BF'2 = O, where A and B are arbitrary constants subject to different types of boundary conditions, is considered. This class of equations frequently occurs in boundary-layer theory. The proposed Dirichlet series method, in conjunction with an unconstrained optimization procedure, is found useful in analyzing these problems. The series so generated is analyzed using Euler transformation and Pade approximants. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
