Hydrodynamic fluctuations in a dilute gas subjected to a constant heat flux are studied by both a computer simulation and the Landau-Lifshitz formalism. The latter explicitly incorporates the boundary conditions of the finite system, thus permitting quantitative comparison with the former. Good agreement is demonstrated.
