In poetry:

I hid in the solar glory,
I am dumb in the pealing song,
I rest on the pitch of the torrent,
In slumber I am strong.
"Song of Nature" by Ralph Waldo Emerson
I hide in the solar glory,
I am dumb in the pealing song,
I rest on the pitch of the torrent,
In slumber I am strong.
"Song Of Nature" by Henry David Thoreau
And now, his mother out of sight,
He fixt his piercing eye
On crags, that blaz'd in solar light,
Whence eagles us'd to fly.
"The Eagle" by William Hayley
What but the gentle rainbow's gleam,
Soothing the wearied sight,
That cannot bear the solar beam,
With soft undazzling light?

The boundless rays of solar light,
The lightnings flash, the thunders roar—
I hold them all in my own right.

But still in the solar warmth I wait,
The hand of my lov'd one clasped in mine;
Is that a tear? It is growing late,
And she asks how long the sun will shine.

In science:

Standard solar models (SSMs) are calibrated against a present-day surface (Z/X )⊙ value: a standard assumption in SSMs is the equivalence between solar core primordial metal abundances and contemporary surface abundances1 .
Solar models with accretion. I. Application to the solar abundance problem
The new SFII nuclear reaction rates do alter the predicted solar neutrino fluxes, particularly the fluxes associated with the ppIII chain and CN-cycle, mechanisms for solar hydrogen burning that are relatively unimportant energetically.
Solar models with accretion. I. Application to the solar abundance problem
Currently, solar neutrinos can not differentiate between different solar compositions.
Solar models with accretion. I. Application to the solar abundance problem
Assuming that initially the proto-solar cloud was well mixed, one can set a lower limit to the mass of the protoplanetary disk, the so-called minimum-mass solar nebula (MMSN) limit, from estimates of the metal content of the planets.
Solar models with accretion. I. Application to the solar abundance problem
These results suggest that it may not be possible to construct solar models with early accretion in which all predicted helioseismic variables agree with solar values extracted from helioseismic observations.
