Abstract

Understanding stellar convection is of crucial importance to many fields of stellar astrophysics. For example, the generation and maintenance of differential rotation and large-scale magnetic fields in stars rely on turbulent convection. However, mounting evidence suggests that our understanding of stellar convection is much more incomplete than previously thought. We bring together experts in three-dimensional convection simulations, helio- and asteroseismology, and theoreticians working on replacing the mixing length concept to present the latest developments and to address open problems in the field.
