The effects of Hall currents and radiation on MHD flow of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting fluid past a moving vertical plate with variable temperature in the presence of a uniform transverse magnetic field have been studied. The governing equations are solved analytically using the Laplace transform technique. Effects of the physical parameters on the velocity (both primary and secondary) profiles and temperature distribution are shown graphically and the results are discussed.
