3. Solar Oscillations Observational Evidence
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 125)


The results of many observations have been interpreted as evidence for global oscillations of the sun. The periods found in these analyses range from minutes to hundreds of years. The shorter period oscillations are usually interpreted as the normal modes proper whereas the longer period features may be manifestations of superpositions and/or nonlinear coupling of these normal modes. The work done to date in this broad area is reviewed.
