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 networks of ground-based observatories such as the GONG project or the BiSON network, coupled with space-based telescopes such as SOHO and SDO missions. Besides the improvement of observational data, solar seismologists developed sophisticated techniques to infer the internal structure of the Sun. These… Expand

Determination of oscillation frequencies and stellar properties of three Delta Scuti variable stars using Kepler data
Asteroseismology is the science that deals with the oscillations in the stars with the goal of understanding the stellar structure. In this study, photometric data of Kepler mission have been usedExpand
The Galactic radial abundance gradients of C, N, O, Ne, S, Cl, and Ar from deep spectra of H ii regions
We present a reassessment of the radial abundance gradients of C, N, O, Ne, S, Cl and Ar in the Milky Way using deep spectra of 33 H II regions gathered from the literature, covering GalactocentricExpand
Standard solar models: Perspectives from updated solar neutrino fluxes and gravity-mode period spacing
Context. Thanks to the vast and exquisite set of observations that have been made available for the Sun, our star is by far an ideal target for testing stellar models with a unique precision. AExpand
Is the Faint Young Sun Problem for Earth Solved?
Stellar evolution models predict that the solar luminosity was lower in the past, typically 20-25% lower during the Archean (3.8-2.5 Ga). Despite the fainter Sun, there is strong evidence for theExpand

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. Expand

We show that standard solar models are in good agreement with the helioseismologically determined sound speed and density as a function of solar radius, the depth of the convective zone, and theExpand
