Pulsating waves in nonlinear magnetoconvection

Matthews, P.C., Proctor, M.R.E., Rucklidge, A.M. and Weiss, N.O. (1993) Pulsating waves in nonlinear magnetoconvection. Physics Letters A, 183 (1). pp. 69-75. ISSN 0375-9601

Numerical experiments on compressible magnetoconvection reveal a new type of periodic oscillation, associated with alternating streaming motion. Analogous behaviour in a Boussinesq fluid is constrained by extra symmetry. A low-order model confirms that these pulsating waves appear via a pitchfork-Hopf-gluing bifurcation sequence from the steady state.
