# ON TRIPLY DIFFUSIVE CONVECTION IN COMPLETELY CONFINED FLUIDS

## Main Article Content

## Abstract

The present paper carries forward Prakash et al.’s (Proc. Ind. Nat. Sc. Acad. 80(1) (2014) 115-122) analysis for triple diffusive convection problem in completely confined fluids and derives upper bounds for the complex growth rate of an arbitrary oscillatory disturbance which may be neutral or unstable through the use of some nontrivial integral estimates obtained from the coupled system of governing equations of the problem.
