This investigation deals with thermal diffusion and diffusion thermo effects on the peristaltic flow of a Sisko fluid in an asymmetric channel. The mode of dissipative heat transfer is taken into account with nonuniform wall temperatures. Long wavelength approximation is utilized. Solutions for the highly nonlinear coupled governing equations involving power law index as an exponent are derived by employing the perturbation technique in a Sisko fluid parameter. Closed form solutions for the stream function, the axial pressure gradient, the skin friction, the temperature, the concentration, and the Nusselt number are presented. Effects of various interesting parameters are graphically interpreted. A comparative study between Newtonian, shear thinning, and shear thickening fluids is also presented. Comparison with published results for the case of viscous fluid is observed in good agreement.
