In this paper, we examine the combined effects of magnetic field, thermal radiation, heat source, velocity slip and thermal jump on peristaltic transport of an electrically conducting Walters-B fluid through a compliant walled channel. Using small wave number approach, the nonlinear model differential equations are obtained and tackled analytically by regular perturbation method. Expressions for the stream function, velocity, temperature, skin-friction coefficient and heat transfer coefficient are constructed. Pertinent results are presented graphically and discussed quantitatively. It is found that the velocity distribution depresses while the fluid temperature rises with an increase in Hartmann number. The trapping phenomenon is observed and the size of trapped bolus increases with an increase in Hartmann number.
