Comment on Similarity analysis in magnetohydrodynamics:effects of Hall and ion-slip currents on free convection flow and mass transfer of a gas past a semi-infinite vertical plate, A.A. Megahed, S.R. Komy, A.A. Afify [Acta Mechanica 151, 185-194 (2001)] In the above paper is investigated the boundary layer flow of an electrically conducting fluid over a vertical, stationary plate placed in a calm fluid. The effects of Hall and ion-slip currents are taken into account. The boundary layer equations are transformed into ordinary ones using a scaling group of transformations and subsequently are solved numerically. However, there are two fundamental errors in the above paper which are presented below.
