The present article deals with the effects of nanoparticles and magnetic field on the peristaltic flow of a couple stress fluid in an asymmetric channel with different wave forms. Mathematical modelling for two dimensional and two directional flows of a couple stress fluid along with nanofluid are first given and then simplified under the assumptions of long wavelength and low Reynolds number approximation. After invoking these approximations we get coupled non-linear differential equations.

Finally graphical results of various physical parameters of interest are discussed to examine the behavior of flow quantities.
