Abstract

Thermocapillary convection in a liquid layer driven by a temperature gradient parallel to the interface in the absence of gravity is considered. It is demonstrated that the temperature field has to satisfy restrictive condition in order for the layer to exist in a continuous form. The dominant response of the layer consists of large interfacial distortion and possible change of its topology. The deformation pattern is nonunique even at very low Reynolds numbers.
