Description

Ce volume contient les revues invitees et les presentations orales du Symposium VAl 181 Sounding Solar and Stellar Interiors, tenu a Nice du 30 septembre au 3 octobre 1996. Les posters presentes a cette conference 1 sont publies dans un volume separe. Depuis Ie lancement avec succes du satellite SoRO Ie 2 Decembre 1995, et apres des annees d'efforts importants dans Ie domaine de l'helio- et l'asterosismologie, il a semble approprie de tenir un symposium dedie aux consequences de la sismologie pour notre connaissance de la structure in- terne du Soleil et des etoiles. Le but etait de presenter a la communaute entiere les nouveaux resultats de l'heliosismologie obtenus aussi bien par les experiences spatiales que par les reseaux exist ants au sol, ainsi que les avancees theoriques dans les domaines de la structure et de la physique de l'interieur solaire. Ce but a ete largement atteint: alors que SoRO ne fournissait des don- nees que depuis environ 6 mois, la qualite des donnees heliosismologiques a ete largement amelioree, de nouvelles techniques ont ete elaborees comme la "telechronosismologie" (nom propose par D.
Gough dans sa conclusion pour l'analyse temps-distance), et de nouveaux mecanismes physiques ont ete proposes pour tenter de reduire les differences persist antes entre Ie Soleil observe et les modeles standard.
