Some course in Stellar Plasma at the OMP master between 2006-2010


I have joined some recent review that describes the main results of SoHO/GOLF (see also T-C et al. , Physics Report 1993), a paper on laboratory opacity experiments and the relationship with seismology, another on the temporal history of the solar rotation deduced from seismology and our paper on the constraints that we can deduce on WIMPs from seismology
