The Olmstead model represents the flow of a layer of viscoelastic fluid heated from below. The equations are
with boundary conditions u(0) = u(1) = 0 and v(0) = v(1) = 0. u represents the speed of the fluid and v is related to viscoelastic forces. The equation was discretised with central differences with grid size . After discretization the equation can be written as with . One seeks the rightmost eigenvalues of the Jacobi matrix with parameters B = 2, C = 0.1 and R = 4.7.
