Numerical solution of the coupled ODE's that result after a similarity variable is introduced to the natural convection boundary - layer equations for flow near a flat plate.
Set up the problem as a system of first order ODEs.
Numerical solution uses a shooting method and a Runge - Kutta Integration.
