Canuto, V.M., 1991: Turbulent convection: A new model. In The Sun and Cool Stars: Activity, Magnetism, Dynamos. I. Tuominen, D. Moss, and G. Rüdiger, Eds., Lecture Notes in Physics, vol. 380, Springer, pp. 27-32, doi:10.1007/3-540-53955-7_100.

We use the latest models of turbulence to compute a new expression for the turbulent convective flux, Fc. The new values of Fc are up to ten times larger than those given by the mixing length theory, MLT. Astrophysical considerations indicate that the new model fares better with observational data than the MLT.
