Do Solar Models with Weakly Interacting Massive Particles Reproduce the Stanford Seismic Data?
The discrepancy between theoretical eigenfrequencies of standard solar models and the frequencies of solar modes of degree between 2 and 5 measured at Stanford is degree-independent for cyclic frequencies above about 2 mHz. Below that frequency the discrepancy for dotriacontapole modes diverges from that of the modes of lower degree. The differences between eigenfrequencies of a simple solar model containing a cloud of weakly interacting particles in its core and of one without do not reproduce this behaviour.
