In this paper there were a number of errors that we have corrected below.

Problem Formulation

There was a typing error in the last terms of the momentum equations 1b,1c that ended up as an oversight. The correct form of the governing equations is

1
ux+vy=0
1a
uux+vuy=ν2uy2+gβ(TT)σB02ρ(1+m2)(u+mw)
1b
uwx+vwy=ν2wy2σB02ρ(1+m2)(wmu)
1c
uTx+vTy=α2Ty21ρcpqry
1d
Consequently, the correct form of Eqs. 5a,5b,5c,5d is
5
Fξ+Gη=0
5a
FFξ+GFη=θ+2Fη2M21+m2(F+mH)
5b
FHξ+GHη=2Hη2M21+m2(HmF)
5c
Fθξ+Gθη=1Pr(1+N)2θη2
5d
The numerical calculations were made with the correct form of the equations and the conclusions drawn from the results therefore remain sound.

Results and Discussion

The incorrect temperature profiles in Figs. 2a,4,5 that were a result of small calculation domain used have been recomputed and the correct profiles are given below. All the figures were computed for ξ=5.

In the original paper there was a mix-up in the figures and captions for Figs. 6,7,8. The correct figures and captions are as follows:

Figure 7
The variation of (a) tangential velocity and (b) lateral velocity distribution with increasing radiation. The tangential velocity decreases with radiation while the tangential velocity initially increases before reducing sharply to zero.
