Following V. Drinfeld and G. Olshansky, we construct Manin triples (g, a, a ) such that g is different from Drinfeld's doubles of a for several series of Lie superalgebras a which have no even invariant bilinear form (periplectic, Poisson and contact) and for a remarkable exception. Straightforward...

The Navier-Stokes equation driven by heat conduction is studied. As a prototype we consider Rayleigh-Bénard convection, in the Boussinesq approximation. Under a large aspect ratio assumption, which is the case in Rayleigh-Bénard experiments with Prandtl number close to one, we prove the existence...
