Phd Thesis

I completed my PhD in astrophysics in Toulouse in December 2004. It is about the large-scale dynamics of convection in the solar photosphere. My supervisor was Prof. Michel Rieutord and François Lignières was also strongly involved in the work. A summary in French or English is available. You can also access the full manuscript (only in French).
