The linear and energy theories of stability of a plane parallel, antisymmetric flow between differentially heated, tilted planes are examined. The linear and energy results do not coincide indicating that subcritical motion may be possible. Also, it is seen that the energy stability limit corresponds to solutions independent of the coordinate in the direction of the flow. An interesting application of Busse’s theorem in this context is demonstrated.
