ABSTRACT

A linear stability analysis is applied to a system consisting of a linear magneto-fluid layer overlying a porous layer affected by rotation and salt concentration on both layers. The flow in the fluid layer is governed by Navier-Stokes’s equations and while governed by Darcy-Brinkman’s law in the porous medium. Numerical solutions are obtained using Legendre polynomials. These solutions are studied through two modes of instability: stationary instability and overstability when the heat and the salt concentration are effected from above and below.
