Development of numerical methods for the solution of Stokes system with slip boundary conditions (Tresca friction conditions) is a challenging task whose difficulty lies in the nonlinear conditions. Such boundary conditions have to be taken into account in many situations arising in practice, in flow of polymers (see [10] and references therein).
