In this paper, we answer the question under which conditions the porous-medium equation with convection and with periodic boundary conditions possesses gradient-type Lyapunov functionals (first-order entropies). It is shown that the weighted sum of first-order and zeroth-order entropies are Lyapunov functionals if the weight for the zeroth-order entropy is sufficiently large, depending on the strength of the convection. This provides new a priori estimates for the convective porous-medium equation. The proof is based on an extension of the algorithmic entropy construction method which is based on systematic integration by parts, formulated as a polynomial decision problem.
