New similarity reductions and exact solutions of the steady-state boundary layer equations, which are of considerable importance in physics, are presented. Besides similarity reductions obtained by applying the 'non-classical' group method due to Bluman and Cole, some similarity solutions, which figure neither among classical nor among non-classical reductions, are determined using an extension of the non-classical method.
