Another assumption is applied here that compared to the Couette flow, the oil squeezing effect is small and neglected.
In addition, it is interesting to study the stabilities of our work and other various flows under the Coriolis effect (see [13] for Couette flow with the relation to Taylor-Gortler vortices; they discussed that the Taylor-Gortler vortices are induced by destabilizing effect of accelerating Couette flow).
