In this paper numerical solutions of thermally radiating Marangoni convection of two-phase dusty fluid moving along a vertical wavy surface are established. The results are given with the understanding that the dust particles are of uniform size and dispersed in optically thick gray fluid. The numerical results are obtained by integrating the dimensionless, transformed parabolic equations, through straightforward implicit finite difference scheme. In order to analyze the influence of various controlling parameters, results are displayed in the form of rate of heat transfer, skin friction coefficient, velocity and temperature profiles, streamlines and isotherms. It is observed that the variation of thermal radiation parameter can significantly change the corresponding particle pattern and extensively promotes the heat transfer rate.
