In the literature, the shift of the spinodal line of polymer solutions under flow is attributed either to an actual shift of the spinodal due to a nonequilibrium modification of the equation of state for the chemical potential, or to an apparent shift due to an increase of hydrodynamic fluctuations owing to the flow. Here we see that both approaches are compatible and that both effects add up. © 1997 The American Physical Society.
