Mixing and Transport of Angular Momentum in the Solar Interior

Conference paper


The observational indicators of mixing in the solar radiative interior, and the known mechanisms for mixing are reviewed critically. It is concluded that the three most important indicators, Li-depletion, the neutrino discrepancy and the internal rotation, probably each have a different, rather than a common origin. The low internal rotation is interpreted as a strong evidence for the presence of a weak magnetic field in the core of the sun.
