Turbulent Rayleigh-Bénard convection (RBC) in a fluid heated from below and cooled from above is a challenging problem in nonlinear physics, with many important applications in natural and engineering systems. Because of the complexity of the governing equations, analytical progress in understanding convection has been slow, and laboratory experiments and numerical simulations have assumed increased importance.
