Abstract

We describe the occurence of spatio-temporal intermittency in a one-dimensional convective system that first shows time-dependent patterns. We recall experimental results and propose a model based on the normal form description of a secondary Hopf bifurcation of a stationary periodic structure. Numerical simulations of this model show spatio-temporal intermittent behaviors, which we characterize briefly and compare to those given by the experiment.
