Abstract
Thermosolutal convection in a layer of RivlinEricksen viscoelastic fluid of Veronis (1965) type is considered in the presence of
uniform vertical magnetic field and rotation in a porous medium. Following the linearized stability theory and normal mode analysis,
the paper through mathematical analysis of the governing equations of RivlinEricksen viscoelastic fluid convection in the presence of
uniform vertical magnetic field and rotation, for any combination of perfectly conducting free and rigid boundaries of infinite
horizontal extension at the top and bottom of the fluid, established that the complex growth rate o of oscillatory perturbations,
neutral or unstable for all wave numbers, must lie inside right half of the a semicircle

1. INTRODUCTION
Chandrasekhar   1 in his celebrated monograph presented a
comprehensive account of the theoretical and experimental
study of the onset of Bnard Convection in Newtonian fluids,
under varying assumptions in hydrodynamics and
hydromagnetics. The use of Boussinesq approximation has
been made throughout, which states that the density changes
are disregarded in all other terms in the equation of motion
except the external force term. The problem of thermohaline
convection in a layer of fluid heated from below (above) and
subjected to a stable (destabilizing) salinity gradient has been
considered by Veronis   2 and Stren  3 respectively. The
physics is quite similar in the stellar case, in that helium acts
like in raising the density and in diffusing more slowly than
heat. The problem is of great importance because of its
applications to atmospheric physics and astrophysics, especially
in the case of the ionosphere and the outer layer of the
atmosphere. The thermosolutal convection problems also arise
in oceanography, limnology and engineering. Bhatia and
Steiner   4 have considered the effect of uniform rotation on
the thermal instability of a viscoelastic (Maxwell) fluid and
found that rotation has a destabilizing influence in contrast to
the stabilizing effect on Newtonian fluid. Sharma   5 has
studied the thermal instability of a layer of viscoelastic
(Oldroydian) fluid acted upon by a uniform rotation and found
that rotation has destabilizing as well as stabilizing effects
under certain conditions in contrast to that of a Maxwell fluid
where it has a destabilizing effect. There are many elastico

viscous fluids that cannot be characterized by Maxwells
constitutive relations or Oldroyds   6 constitutive relations.
Two such classes of fluids are RivlinEricksens and Walters
(model B) fluids. RivlinEricksen  7 has proposed a
theoretical model for such one class of elasticoviscous fluids.
Sharma and kumar   8 have studied the effect of rotation on
thermal instability in RivlinEricksen elasticoviscous fluid and
found that rotation has a stabilizing effect and introduces
oscillatory modes in the system. Kumar et al.   9 considered
effect of rotation and magnetic field on RivlinEricksen
elasticoviscous fluid and found that rotation has stabilizing
effect; where as magnetic field has both stabilizing and
destabilizing effects. A layer of such fluid heated from below or
under the action of magnetic field or rotation or both may find
applications in geophysics, interior of the Earth, Oceanography,
and the atmospheric physics. With the growing importance of
nonNewtonian fluids in modern technology and industries, the
investigations on such fluids are desirable.
In all above studies, the medium has been considered to be
nonporous with free boundaries only, in general. In recent
years, the investigation of flow of fluids through porous media
has become an important topic due to the recovery of crude oil
from the pores of reservoir rocks. When a fluid permeates a
porous material, the gross effect is represented by the Darcys
law. As a result of this macroscopic law, the usual viscous term
in the equation of RivlinEricksen fluid motion is replaced by
the resistance term

are the viscosity and viscoelasticity of the RivlinEricksen
fluid,

k is the medium permeability and q is the Darcian
(filter) velocity of the fluid. The problem of thermosolutal
convection in fluids in a porous medium is of great importance
in geophysics, soil sciences, ground water hydrology and
astrophysics. Generally, it is accepted that comets consist of a
dusty snowball of a mixture of frozen gases which, in the
process of their journey, changes from solid to gas and vice
versa. The physical properties of the comets, meteorites and
interplanetary dust strongly suggest the importance of non
Newtonian fluids in chemical technology, industry and
geophysical fluid dynamics. Thermal convection in porous
medium is also of interest in geophysical system,
electrochemistry and metallurgy. A comprehensive review of
the literature concerning thermal convection in a fluidsaturated
porous medium may be found in the book by Nield and Bejan
  10 .
Pellow and Southwell   11 proved the validity of PES for the
classical RayleighBnard convection problem. Banerjee et al
  12 gave a new scheme for combining the governing
equations of thermohaline convection, which is shown to lead
to the bounds for the complex growth rate of the arbitrary
oscillatory perturbations, neutral or unstable for all
combinations of dynamically rigid or free boundaries and,
Banerjee and Banerjee   13 established a criterion on
characterization of nonoscillatory motions in hydrodynamics
which was further extended by Gupta et al.   14 . However no
such result existed for nonNewtonian fluid configurations in
general and in particular, for RivlinEricksen viscoelastic fluid
configurations. Banyal   15 have characterized the oscillatory
motions in RivlinEricksen fluid in the presence of rotation.
Keeping in mind the importance of nonNewtonian fluids, as
stated above, the present paper is an attempt to prescribe the
bounds to the complex growth rate of arbitrary oscillatory
motions of growing amplitude, in a thermosolutal convection of
a layer of incompressible RivlinEricksen fluid configuration of
Veronis   2 type in the presence of uniform vertical magnetic
field and rotation in a porous medium, when the bounding
surfaces are of infinite horizontal extension, at the top and
bottom of the fluid and are with any arbitrary combination of
perfectly conducting dynamically free and rigid boundaries. A
similar result is also proved for Stern   3 type of configuration.
The result is important since the result hold for any arbitrary
combinations of dynamically free and rigid boundaries.

We now consider the cases where the boundaries are rigidrigid

maintained at constant temperature and solute concentration.
Then the perturbations in the temperature and solute
concentration are zero at the boundaries. The appropriate
boundary conditions with respect to which equations (13)(16),
must possess a solution are

The essential content of the theorem, from the point of view of
linear stability theory is that for the thermosolutal Veronis
(1965) type configuration of RivlinEricksen viscoelastic fluid
in the presence of uniform vertical rotation in a porous medium,
having top and bottom bounding surfaces of infinite horizontal
extension, with any arbitrary combination of dynamically free
and rigid boundaries in a porous medium, the complex growth
rate of an arbitrary oscillatory motions of growing amplitude,
lies inside a semicircle in the right half of the
r

 plane
whose centre is at the origin and radius is equal to

where
s
R
is the thermosolutal Rayleigh number, Q is the
Chandrasekhar number,
A
T
is the Taylor number, F is the
viscoelasticity parameter,
3
p
is the thermosolutal prandtl
number,
c
is the porosity and
l
P
is the medium permeability.
The result is important since it hold for any arbitrary
combinations of dynamically free and rigid boundaries. The
similar conclusions are drawn for the thermosolutal
configuration of Stern (1960) type of RivlinEricksen
viscoelastic fluid of infinite horizontal extension in the
presence of uniform vertical magnetic field in a porous
medium, for any arbitrary combination of free and rigid
boundaries at the top and bottom of the fluid from Theorem 2.
