Abstract

Convection is one of the most intricate processes studied in stellar astrophysics and has challenged both theorists and observers since the beginnings of astrophysics. But during the last two decades observational data of unprecedented resolution and accuracy have been collected in solar and stellar research which permit a new look at the field. An enormous increase of computer speed now permits solving more complete model equations with more accurate numerical approximations. Modelling and theoretical understanding of convection, however, are lagging behind observational progress and are still wanting.
