The seismic Sun

  • Sarbani Basu (a1)

Abstract

Helioseismic techniques allow us to probe the interior of the Sun with very high precision and in the process test the physical inputs to stellar models. The picture of the Sun that has been built in this manner may be termed “The Seismic Sun”. After a brief discussion of some of the inversion techniques used in the process, our current view of the seismic Sun shall be reviewed. What we know so far suggests that the internal structure of the Sun can be represented by a standard model, however, one which has a smoother sound-speed and abundance variation than the solar models with the usual treatment of diffusion.
