##### Abstract

The dynamics of a closed thermosyphon are considered. Using an explicit construction, obtained through an inertial manifold, exact low-dimensional models are derived. The behavior of solutions is analyzed for different ranges of the relevant parameters, and the Lorenz model is obtained for a range of parameter values. Numerical experiments are performed for three- and five-mode models
