The key objective of the study under concern is to probe the impacts of Brownian motion and thermophoresis diffusion on Casson nanofluid boundary layer flow over a nonlinear inclined stretching sheet, with the effect of convective boundaries and thermal radiations. Nonlinear ordinary differential equations are obtained from governing nonlinear partial differential equations by using compatible similarity transformations. The quantities associated with engineering aspects, such as skin friction, Sherwood number, and heat exchange along with various impacts of material factors on the momentum, temperature, and concentration, are elucidated and clarified with diagrams. The numerical solution of the present study is obtained via the Keller-box technique and in limiting sense are reduced to the published results for accuracy purpose. View Full-Text
