Abstract: Free convection in a rectangular well of infinite depth at low Rayleigh number is considered. A pair of opposite vertical walls are at different temperatures, whereas the other walls are adiabatic. The three-dimensional Stokes flow regime is analyzed and the boundary-layer function for the adiabatic walls is determined.
