The flow of an incompressible fluid is modeled in a channel of a rectangular cross section with two symmetric peristaltic waves propagating on the top and bottom. A low Reynolds number and a long wavelength are assumed. The effect on pumping of the inclusion of slip boundary conditions on the side walls is investigated.
