A global nonlinear stability analysis is performed for a rotating couple-stress fluid layer heated from below saturating a porous medium for different conducting boundary systems. Here, the global nonlinear stability threshold for convection is exactly the same as the linear instability boundary. This optimal result is important because it shows that linearized instability theory has captured completely the physics of the onset of convection. The eigenvalue problems for different conducting boundaries are solved by using Galerkin method. The effects of couple-stress parameter, Darcy-Brinkman number and Taylor number on the onset of convection are also analyzed.
