Abstract
The problem of a stable stratified fluid heated by a point source of heat a t various depths is treated in this paper. A hot plume is formed with a ser ies of layer around and above it. Quantitative estimates for the criterion of onset of doubly diffusive instability are obtained in this work. The lin ear differential system governing stability is then solved. The results sho w that the stationary onset of this doubly diffusive problem caused by a po int source may be led to a similar form of small-gap Taylor-Couette problem .
