Stability analysis for the Walters-B model saturated with permeable nanofluid is taken under study including cross diffusion effects. The porous medium is defined using modified Darcy model, and the nanofluid is considered to have the impact of thermophoresis and Brownian motion. The thermal energy equation includes the effects of diffusion and also cross diffusion. For the study of linear theory, normal mode procedure is applied and to understand the nonlinear theory, the method of minimal representation of double Fourier series is utilized. The effects of nondimensional parameters such as concentration Rayleigh number, Lewis number, Soret and Dufour parameters, Solutal Rayleigh number, elastic parameter, Prandtl number, viscosity ratio, and conductivity ratio on the stationary and oscillatory convections are represented graphically. The effect of time on transient Nusselt numbers is also taken under investigation. It is concluded that when time is small, the three Nusselt numbers oscillate for all the governing parameters and approach to steady-state as time increases.
