Accurate analytic solutions for the fully developed slip flow and H1 heat transfer in rectangular and equilateral triangular ducts are presented. Both velocity slip and temperature jump have significant influences on the Poiseuille and Nusselt numbers. These exact solutions serve as benchmark cases for other methods, whether analytic, approximate, or numerical.
