Abstract.It is commonly and quite plausibly presumed that neutrino flavour transitions are responsible for essentially all of the discrepancy between the observed flux of neutrinos from the Sun and the theoretically calculated neutrino production rate. Indeed, the comparison between the detection rates by SuperKamiokande and by the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory are consistent with this presumption. Helioseismological analysis has set quite tight constraints on the conditions in the Sun’s core… Expand


Measurement of the solar neutrino capture rate with gallium metal. III:2002-2007
The Sun produces its energy by the nuclear fusion of four protons into an α particle, chains of reactions that yield two positrons and two neutrinos. Since these lowenergy neutrinos are weaklyExpand
Measurement of the solar electron neutrino flux with the Homestake chlorine detector
The Homestake Solar Neutrino Detector, based on the inverse beta-decay reaction νe +37Cl →37Ar + e-, has been measuring the flux of solar neutrinos since 1970. The experiment has operated in a stableExpand
Solar Models with Helioseismic Constraints and the Solar Neutrino Problem
Imposing a constraint of the sound-speed profile determined from helioseismology and updating the microphysics, we have revised our seismic solar model, constructed with the assumption of aExpand
Solar Neutrinos. II. Experimental
A method is described for observing solar neutrinos from the reaction Cl/ sup 37/( nu ,e/sup -/)Ar/sup 37/ in C/sub 2/Cl/sub 4/. Two 5 00-gal tanks of C/ sub 2/Cl/sub 4/ were placed in a limestoneExpand
Measurement of the rate of ve + d → p + p + e- interactions produced by 8B solar neutrinos at the sudbury neutrino observatory
Solar neutrinos from the decay of 8B have been detected at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) via the charged current (CC) reaction on deuterium and by the elastic scattering (ES) of electrons.Expand
Measurements of the solar neutrino flux from Super-Kamiokande's first 300 days
The first results of the solar neutrino flux measurement from Super-Kamiokande are presented. The results shown here are obtained from data taken between 31 May 1996, and 23 June 1997. Using ourExpand
Solar 8B and hep neutrino measurements from 1258 days of Super-Kamiokande data.
Solar neutrino measurements from 1258 days of data from the Super-Kamiokande detector are presented and the recoil electron energy spectrum is consistent with no spectral distortion. Expand
Direct evidence for neutrino flavor transformation from neutral-current interactions in the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory.
Observations of neutral-current nu interactions on deuterium in the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory are reported, providing strong evidence for solar nu(e) flavor transformation. Expand
Standard solar models, with and without helium diffusion and the solar neutrino problem
We first show that, with the same input parameters, the standard solar models of Bahcall and Ulrich; of Sienkiewicz, Bahcall, and Paczy\ifmmode \acute{n}\else \'{n}\fi{}ski; of Turck-Chi\`eze, Cahen,Expand
The Current State of Solar Modeling
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
