Colloquium : Unusual dynamics of convection in the Sun
The Sun, Earth's star, is of fundamental interest for life on our planet and remains a source of many scientific mysteries. The motion in its interior is complex and involves diverse physical

Concerning the multiscale structure of solar convection
The discrete scale spectrum of the convective flows observed on the Sun has not yet received a convincing explanation. Here, an attempt is made to find conditions for the coexistence of convective
Stratification-induced scale splitting in convection
Turbulent Dynamics in the Solar Convection Zone
High-performance computing now permits numerical simulations of compressible turbulence and magnetohydrodynamics with sufficient resolution to show that compact structures of vorticity and magnetic fields can coexist with larger scales.
On the Origin of the Solar Mesogranulation
The observed properties of mesogranules are related to structures found in idealized numerical experiments on turbulent convection. We describe results obtained for three-dimensional Boussinesq
Solar Surface Convection
Radiative-hydrodynamical simulations of solar surface convection can be used as 2D/3D time-dependent models of the solar atmosphere to predict the emergent spectrum, and the resulting detailed spectral line profiles agree spectacularly well with observations without invoking any micro- and macroturbulence parameters.
Rayleigh‐Bénard Convection: Structures and Dynamics
Part 1 Basic concepts. Part 2 Investigation tools: experiment theoretical approaches. Part 3 Main types of convective-flow structures: two-dimensional rolls and three-dimensional cells patterns of
Solar magneto-convection
An overview is given about recent developments and results of comprehensive simulations of magneto-convective processes in the near-surface layers and photosphere of the Sun. Simulations now cover a
Simulations of magneto-convection in the solar photosphere Equations, methods, and results of the MURaM code
We have developed a 3D magnetohydrodynamics simulation code for applications in the solar convection zone and photosphere. The code includes a non-local and non-grey radiative transfer module and
Computer simulation for subcritical convection in multi‐component alloys
Abstract Subcritical convection with hexagonal flow pattern is registered in 3D computer simulation of convective mass transfer in ternary solution under phase transition conditions. The calculations
Analysis of solution algorithms for the three-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations in the natural variables
Numerical modeling methods have long been widely used in convection analysis. Problems arising in science and technology are a continuing source of new challenges. Their solution requires developing
