The density fluctuations below the onset of convection in the Rayleigh-Bénard problem are studied with the direct simulation Monte Carlo method. The particle simulation results clearly show the connection between the static correlation functions of fluctuations below the critical Rayleigh number and the flow patterns above the onset of convection for small… CONTINUE READING
