In this paper, a boundary layer analysis is presented for the slip flow of three types of incompressible viscous nanofluids past a permeable wedge in the presence of a magnetic field. Due to the appearance of a slip boundary condition at the surface, local similarity solution of the reduced nonlinear ordinary differential equation is obtained by the HAM coupled with minimizing the square residual error. The effects of pertinent parameters, such as the magnetic parameter, the solid volume fraction of nanoparticles, the slip parameter and the type of nanofluid on the flow, are analyzed and studied in details. It is found that Ag-water has the highest skin friction coefficient at the surface compared with the others.
