New type of bifurcations in the modified Rayleigh–Benard convection problem

The original Rayleigh–Benard convection is a standard example of the system where bifurcations occur with changing of a control parameter. In this paper we consider the modified Rayleigh–Benard convection problem including radiative effects as well as gas sources on a surface. Such formulation leads to the identification of new type of bifurcations in the problem besides the well-known Benard cells.
