6 What Do Global Simulations Tell Us about the Convection Zone?

In this and the following section we will focus on global-scale simulations of solar convection and we review what insights they have provided into solar interior dynamics and where they are in need of improvement. We will begin by placing these models in a historical context and by saying a few words about the computational approach.


 6.1 Historical perspective
 6.2 Convection structure
 6.3 Differential rotation
 6.4 Meridional circulation
 6.5 Dynamo processes
 6.6 Comparisons with mean-field theory
  6.6.1 Mean-field hydrodynamics
