Confined States in Phase Dynamics

  • Helmut R. Brand
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 225)


Recently two groups1–3 have described the observation of confined states in an annulus near the onset of convection in binary fluid mixtures. These confined states are characterized by the fact that for part of the annulus a convective pattern is visible — that is the envelope of the convective pattern assumes a finite value — whereas the rest of the container is in the heat conduction state. These observations are now under intense investigation theoretically4–6 and experimentally2,3.
