We present a novel approach for deriving analytical solutions to transport equations expressed in similarity variables. We apply a fixed-point iteration procedure to these transformed equations by formally solving for the highest derivative term and, from this (via requirements for convergence given by the contraction mapping principle), deduce a range of values for the outer limit of solution domain, for which the fixed-point iteration gives a converged solution.
