Convectons in a rotating fluid layer.


Two-dimensional convection in a plane layer bounded by stress-free perfectly conducting horizontal boundaries and rotating uniformly about the vertical is considered. Time independent spatially localized structures, called convectons, of even and odd parity are computed. The convectons are embedded within a self-generated shear layer with a compensating shear flow outside the structure. These states are organized within a bifurcation structure called slanted snaking and may be present even when periodic convection sets in supercritically. These interesting properties are traced to the presence of a conserved quantity and hence to the use of stress-free boundary conditions.
