Abstract in another language

Hydrodynamic systems driven away from equilibrium by sufficiently strong external forcing can develop spatially periodic patterns. A popular and intensely studied example is the Rayleigh-Bénard (RB) convection instability in a fluid layer heated from below and cooled from above [1–4]. This system is isotropic in the plane of the layer. One needs then special precautions to prepare well-ordered patterns without defects, because a restoring force against weak bending and the resulting reorientation is lacking.
