The influence of Hall currents and rotation on the oscillatory flows of an infinite plate is investigated. Exact solutions for the two problems are obtained. The fluid considered is a homogeneous Oldroyd-B. During the mathematical analysis it is found that governing differential equation for steady flow in an Oldroyd-B fluid is identical to that of viscous fluid. Further, it is observed that in absence of the strength of transverse magnetic field (B0) the solution in resonance case does not satisfy the boundary condition at infinity. Physical significance of mathematical results is also discussed.
