Title: {sup {bold 3}}He Transport in the Sun and the Solar Neutrino Problem

Abstract

Recent solar neutrino experiments show that both {phi}({sup 8}B) and the neutrino flux ratio {phi}({sup 7}Be)/{phi}({sup 8}B) are substantially below their standard solar model values, leading some to discount the possibility of an astrophysical solution to the solar neutrino puzzle. We test this conclusion phenomenologically and find that the discrepancies can be significantly reduced by a distinctive pattern of core mixing on time scales characteristic of {sup 3}He equilibration. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}
