We introduce blowing-up coordinates to study the autonomous third order nonlinear differential equation : $f'''+\frac{m+1}{2}ff''-m f'^2=0$ on $(0,\infty)$, subject to the boundary conditions $f(0)=a\in\mathbb R$, $f'(0)=1$ and $f'(t)\to 0$ as $t\to\infty$. This problem arises when looking for similarity solutions to problems of boundary-layer theory in some contexts of fluids mechanics, as free convection in porous medium or flow adjacent to a stretching wall. We study the corresponding plane dynamical systems and apply the results obtained to the original boundary value problem, in order to solve questions for which direct approach fails.
