abstract = {We consider the Stokes-Oldroyd equations, defined here as
the Stokes equations with the Newtonian constitutive equation explicitly
included. Thus a polymer-like stress tensor is included so that the
dependent variable structure of a viscoelastic model is in place. The
energy equation is coupled with the mass, momentum, and constitutive
equations through the use of temperature-dependent viscosity terms in
both the constitutive model and the momentum equation. Earlier works
assumed temperature-dependent constitutive (polymer) and Newtonian
(solvent) viscosities when describing the model equations, but made the
simplifying assumption of a constant solvent viscosity when carrying out
analysis and computations; we assume no such simplification. Our
analysis coupled with numerical solution of the problem with both
temperature-dependent viscosities distinguishes this work from earlier
efforts.
