We study the phase separation of a binary mixture in uniform shear flow in the framework of the continuum convection-diffusion equation based on a Ginzburg-Landau free energy. This equation is solved both numerically and in the context of large-N approximation. Our results show the existence of domains with two typical sizes, whose relative abundance changes in time. As a consequence log-time periodic oscillations are observed in the behavior of most thermodynamic observables.
