Rigid rotation of the solar core? On the reliable extraction of low-ℓ rotational p-mode splittings from full-disc observations of the Sun
We present low-l rotational p-mode splittings from the analysis of 8 yr of observations made by the Birmingham Solar-Oscillations Network (BiSON) of the full solar disc. These data are presented inExpand

Radius determination of solar-type stars using asteroseismology: what to expect from the Kepler mission
For distant stars, as observed by the NASA Kepler satellite, parallax information is currently of fairly low quality and is not complete. This limits the precision with which the absolute sizes ofExpand

Rotation of the solar core from BiSON and LOWL frequency observations
ABSTRA C T Determination of the rotation of the solar core requires very accurate data on splittings for the low-degree modes which penetrate to the core, as well as for modes of higher degree toExpand

Variations in the excitation and damping of low-l solar p modes over the solar activity cycle *
We have searched helioseismic data collected by the Birmingham Solar Oscillations Network (BiSON) for solar-cycle changes to those low-L p-mode parameters that relate to the excitation and damping ofExpand

On model predictions of the power spectral density of radial solar p modes
We investigate the frequency dependence of the power spectral density of low-degree solar p modes by comparing measurements with the results of a stochastic-excitation model. In the past it wasExpand

Solar Heavy-Element Abundance: Constraints from Frequency Separation Ratios of Low-Degree p-Modes
We use very precise frequencies of low-degree solar-oscillation modes measured from 4752 days of data collected by the Birmingham Solar-Oscillations Network to derive seismic information on the solarExpand

Definitive Sun-as-a-star p-mode frequencies: 23 years of BiSON observations
We present a list of 'best possible' estimates of low-degree p-mode frequencies from 8640 days of observations made by the Birmingham Solar-Oscillations Network (BiSON). This is the longest stretchExpand

Ensemble Asteroseismology of Solar-Type Stars with the NASA Kepler Mission
Measurements of 500 Sun-like stars show that their properties differ from those predicted by stellar population models. In addition to its search for extrasolar planets, the NASA Kepler missionExpand

The Sun is a variable star whose magnetic activity varies most perceptibly on a timescale of approximately 11 years. However, significant variation is also observed on much shorter timescales. WeExpand

Solar p-mode excitation: further insight from recent low-ℓ BiSON helioseismological data
We present measurements of low-degree solar p-mode velocity powers, energies and energy supply rates between similar to 1600 mu Hz and similar to 4700 mu Hz, as derived from the analysis of severalExpand
