Résumé : This chapter describes the phenomenology and modeling of Bénard-like patterns and waves in liquid layers, including the case of thin films for which surface tension eff ects are dominant. Attention is also paid to the (generalized) one-sided description of instabilities in the presence of evaporation, with or without an inert component in the gas phase. Then, the focus is on simpli ed models of patterned structures, and on the role of symmetry properties of the physical system considered.
