Internal Rotation of the Sun I: Results from helioseismology

14th September 2004

Author: Michael J. Thompson (Sheffield)

Abstract

In this first of two lectures on the Sun's internal rotation and seismic probing of solar and stellar interiors, I shall review the results obtained with helioseismology regarding the internal rotation of the Sun, and compare those inferences with the results coming out of numerical simulations.
