A mathematical model for MHD blood flow through a stenosed artery with Soret and Dufour effects in the presence of thermal radiation has been studied. A uniform magnetic field is applied perpendicular to the porous surface. The governing non-linear partial differential equations have been transformed into linear partial differential equations, which are solved numerically by applying the explicit finite difference method. The numerical results are presented graphically in the form of velocity, temperature and concentration profiles. The effects of various parameters such as the Reynolds number, Hartmann number, radiation parameter, Schmidt number and Prandtl number, Soret and Dufour parameter on the velocity, temperature and concentration have been examined with the help of graphs. The present results have an important bearing on the therapeutic procedure of hyperthermia, particularly in understanding/regulating blood flow and heat transfer in capillaries.
