We present new results on the structure of the solar core, obtained with new sets of frequencies of solar low-degree p modes obtained from the BiSON network. We find that different methods used in extracting the different sets of frequencies cause shifts in frequencies, but the shifts are not large enough to affect solar structure results. We find that the BiSON frequencies show that the solar sound speed in the core is slightly larger than that inferred from data from Michelson Doppler Imager… 
Seismic inversion of the solar entropy: A case for improving the Standard Solar Model
The Sun is the most constrained and well-studied of all stars. As a consequence, the physical ingredients entering solar models are used as a reference to study all other stars observed in the
Solar structure and evolution
The Sun provides a critical benchmark for the general study of stellar structure and evolution. Also, knowledge about the internal properties of the Sun is important for the understanding of solar

First, we briefly review the solar abundance problem and its current status. We start with the description of the existing theoretical model of the Sun and its main uncertainties and proceed with the
THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF THE SUN FROM HELIOSEISMIC AND SOLAR NEUTRINO DATA
We perform a quantitative analysis of the solar composition problem by using a statistical approach that allows us to combine the information provided by helioseismic and solar neutrino data in an
THE SOLAR ABUNDANCE PROBLEM: THE EFFECT OF THE TURBULENT KINETIC FLUX ON THE SOLAR ENVELOPE MODEL
Recent three-dimensional (3D) simulations have shown that the turbulent kinetic flux (TKF) is significant. We discuss the effects of TKF on the size of the convection zone and find that the TKF may
THE SOLAR ENERGETIC BALANCE REVISITED BY YOUNG SOLAR ANALOGS, HELIOSEISMOLOGY, AND NEUTRINOS
The energetic balance of the standard solar model (SSM) results from equilibrium between nuclear energy production, energy transfer, and photospheric emission. In this Letter, we give an order of
Progress in Global Helioseismology: A New Light on the Solar Modeling Problem and Its Implications for Solar-Like Stars
Since the first observations of solar oscillations, helioseismology has been one of the most successful fields of astrophysics. Data of high quality were obtained through the implementation of
Asteroseismic Inference of the Central Structure in a Subgiant Star
Asteroseismic measurements enable inferences of the underlying stellar structure, such as the density and the speed of sound at various points within the interior of the star. This provides an
Global seismology of the Sun
The seismic study of the Sun and other stars offers a unique window into the interior of these stars. Thanks to helioseismology, we know the structure of the Sun to admirable precision. In fact, our
Helioseismic and neutrino data-driven reconstruction of solar properties
In this work we use Bayesian inference to quantitatively reconstruct the solar properties most relevant to the solar composition problem using as inputs the information provided by helioseismic and

Structure of the Solar Core: Effect of Asymmetry of Peak Profiles
Recent studies have established that peaks in solar oscillation power spectra are not Lorentzian in shape but have a distinct asymmetry. Fitting a symmetric Lorentzian profile to the peaks,

Helioseismic analysis of solar global oscillations allows investigation of the internal structure of the Sun. One important test of the reliability of the inferences from helioseismology is that the

We propose that when all sources on the solar disc are taken into account, the S component at 10.7 cm wavelength is dominated by thermal free-free (bremsstrahlung) emission. It is not produced only

The Current State of Solar Modeling
TLDR
Data from the GONG project and other helioseismic experiments reveal subtle errors in the models, such as an excess in sound speed just beneath the convection zone, which is plausible that the sound-speed differences reflect weak mixing in stellar interiors.
