The problem of MHD flow and heat transfer in a Newtonian viscous incompressible fluid over a stretching sheet with temperature gradient dependent heat sink/source and radiation is investigated. The governing partial differential equations are converted into ordinary differential equations by similarity transformation technique . The effects of viscous dissipation, work due to deformation, thermal radiation are considered in the energy equation and the variations of dimensionless surface

The heating process of the type i ) the sheet with prescribed surface temperature (PST case) is studied.
