Figure 1.

The case of rigid upper and lower walls, Rb = 0 (no microorganisms): (a) Oscillatory and non-oscillatory instability boundaries in the (Rac, Rn) plane. (b) Critical wavenumber in the (Rac, Rn) plane. (c) Square of the oscillation frequency, ω2, versus the nanoparticle concentration Rayleigh number (for oscillatory instability to occur, ω2 must be positive so that ω remains real).
