In this paper , we study the effects of slip boundary condition and Hall currents on peristaltic motion of a non-Newtonian fluid which follows Bingham-Papanastasiou model, with heat transfer taking into account the thermal radiation and heat generation, through an asymmetric channel. This phenomena is modeled mathematically by a system of governing equations which are continuity, momentum and heat equations. These equations are solved analytically under low Reynolds number condition and long wavelength approximation. The stream function and temperature distribution are obtained as functions of physical parameters of the problem. The effects of the parameters on these solutions are discussed numerically and illustrated graphically through a set of figures. It is found that the physical parameters have important roles to control the velocity and temperature distribution.
