    • sola A cry or call to attract the attention of one at a distance.
    • n sola A tall leguminous swamp-plant, Æschynomene aspera, found widely in the Old World tropics. Its robust stems are of a pith-like texture (sometimes called spongewood), and in India are worked up into many articles, especially hats and military helmets, which are very light and cool. See Æschynomene and hat-plant.

In science:

These include the usual scaling law based on the large frequency separation, an approach described in Kjeldsen et al. (2008) (the “KBCD approach”), and a SOLA inversion technique with a non-linear extension.
Estimating stellar mean density through seismic inversions
However, for a more detailed analysis, the SOLA method seems ideal as it is specifically designed to optimise the averaging kernel while reducing various sources of error.
Estimating stellar mean density through seismic inversions
Furthermore, possible improvements to the SOLA method, such as introducing weight functions in the cost function Eq. (16) (e.g.
Estimating stellar mean density through seismic inversions
As expected from asymptotic theory, near-surface effects are shown to have a stronger impact on the h∆ν i scaling law than on the two other methods, even when surface corrections are not included in the SOLA approach.
Estimating stellar mean density through seismic inversions
This raises the question as to how accurate the KBCD and SOLA approaches would be in a similar situation, although one also has to bear in mind that this temperature range is less relevant for solar-like oscillations.
Estimating stellar mean density through seismic inversions
This reduces the contribution of mixed modes to SOLA inversions and leads to averaging kernels with an oscillatory behaviour near the centre for the h∆ν i scaling law and the KBCD approach.
