    • Abstract


      The thermorheological effect on magnetoconvection in fluids with weak electrical conductivity is studied numerically under lg and μg conditions. The results with a non-linear thermorheological equation considered in the problem when compared with those of the classical approach with constant viscosity delineate the fact that the latter approach results in an over-prediction of the critical eigenvalue. The results have possible astrophysical applications involving sunspots as also in space applications under /ig.
