The heat transfer in strongly magnetized ferrofluids is calculated in the case where there is strong heating from above. The convection pattern at critical conditions has a large wave number, and this is used to derive simplified equations for the temperature field in the ferrofluid. The results show that the heat transfer depends non-linearly on the temperature difference.
