Introduction:
      Thermal instability often arises when a fluid is heated from below. The classic example of this,described in this document, is a horizontal layer of fluid with its lower side hotter than its upper. Stimulated by Benard's experiments (1900), Rayleigh (1916) formulated the theory of
convective instability of a layer of fluid between horizontal planes.
