A viscous shear flow moves parallel to a wavy plate. Partial slip occurs on the wavy surface. The problem is solved by perturbation about a small amplitude parameter, namely, the amplitude to wavelength ratio. It is found that the interaction of waviness and slip decreases the apparent slip coefficient.
