In this paper an analytical technique, namely the adomian decomposition method (ADM), has been applied to solve the governing equations for boundary- Layer problems in the case of a two dimensional incompressible flow. In the present work, Falkner-Skan equation for special circumstances (Blasius flow, Stagnation point flow, flow in a convergent channel, flow over a wedge) has been solved. It is found that this method can give very accurate results and also it is powerful mathematical tool that can be applied to a large class of Linear and nonlinear problems in different fields of science and engineering.
