Abstract

Using the most recent updated physics, calibrated solar models have been computed with the new thermonuclear reaction rates of NACRE, the recently available European compilation. Comparisons with models computed with the reaction rates of Caughlan & Fowler (1988) and of Adelberger et al. (1998) are made for global structure, expected neutrinos fluxes, chemical composition and sound speed profiles, helioseismological properties of p-modes and g-modes.

Key words: nuclear reactions, nucleosynthesis, abundances – Sun: evolution – Sun: interior – Sun: oscillations
