Abstract

We study the ordering dynamics of the Rayleigh-Bénard convective patterns using the cell-dynamical-system model. Evidence for a fluctuation-induced first-order transition is presented. The simulation result confirms the theoretical prediction to exhibit the dynamic scaling with a characteristic length scale l(t)∼t1/2.
