Bifurcations in doubly diffusive convection
Abstract
A specific fluid dynamical system involving doubly diffusive convection is chosen to illustrate concepts involving bifurcation phenomena. In all cases of doubly diffusive convection, the convection occurs in a layer of fluid that is heated from below in the presence of a restraint. The destabilizing thermal buoyancy is therefore opposed by solute content negative buoyancy, the Lorentz force from the perturbed magnetic field, or the Coriolis force.
