We study the stability of patterns arising in rotating convection in weakly anisotropic systems using a modified Swift-Hohenberg equation. The anisotropy, either an endogenous characteristic of the system or induced by external forcing, can stabilize periodic rolls in the Küppers-Lortz chaotic regime. We apply this to the particular case of rotating convection with time-modulated rotation where recently, in experiment, spiral and target patterns have been observed in otherwise Küppers-Lortz… CONTINUE READING
