This analysis deals with the numerical solution of MHD flow of tangent hyperbolic fluid over a stretching cylinder in the presence of variable thermal conductivity. The governing nonlinear partial differential equations are presented and then converted into ordinary differential equations by using similarity transformations. The subsequent ordinary differential equations are successfully solved by using implicit finite difference scheme known as the Keller-box method. The non-dimensional parameters appearing in momentum and temperature equations are expressed through graphs in order to analyze the behavior of velocity and temperature profiles. To understand the behavior of fluid near the surface of the cylinder the skin friction co-efficient and local heat flux are calculated graphically and in tabulated form.
