Abstract
We analyze the effect of adding a small inclination to a two dimensional horizontal bounded layer heated from below containing a binary mixture with negative separation ratio (water-ethanol mixtures). The horizontal component of gravity generates a parallel shear flow with a cubic profile that interacts with the convective flows generated by the vertical component. The primary bifurcation of this flow, for very small inclinations, is a Hopf bifurcation that gives rise to chevron and blinking sta...
