Localized states are found in many pattern forming systems. The aim of this paper is to investigate the occurrence of oscillatory localized states in two-dimensional Boussinesq magnetoconvection. Initially considering an idealized model, in which the vertical structure of the system has been simplified by a projection onto a small number of Fourier modes, we find that these states are restricted to the low ζ regime (where ζ represents the ratio of the magnetic to thermal diffusivities). These…

A novel asymptotic limit of model equations proposed to describe the formation of localized states in a vertically vibrated layer of granular material or viscoelastic fluid is considered which allows the local depth of the granular layer to vary by $O(1)$ amounts even when the pattern amplitude is small.
