title = "Numerical simulations of rotating Rayleigh-B{\'e}nard convection",

abstract = "The Rayleigh-B{\'e}nard (RB) system is relevant to astro- and geophysical phenomena, including convection in the ocean, the Earth{\textquoteright}s outer core, and the outer layer of the Sun. The dimensionless heat transfer (the Nusselt number Nu) in the system depends on the Rayleigh number Ra={\ss}g¿L 3/(¿¿) and the Prandtl number Pr=¿/¿. Here, {\ss} is the thermal expansion coefficient, g the gravitational acceleration, ¿ the temperature difference between the bottom and top, and ¿ and ¿ the kinematic viscosity and the thermal diffusivity, respectively. The rotation rate H is used in the form of the Rossby number Ro=({\ss}g¿/L)/(2H). The key question is: How does the heat transfer depend on rotation and the other two control parameters: Nu(Ra, Pr, Ro)? Here we will answer this question by giving a summary of our results",
