Fig. B.1


Schematic illustration of the tidal acceleration exerted by a planet of mass m on a point x in the solar interior. O represents the center of mass of the solar system. Ob represents the solar center of mass. xb is the instantaneous position of the solar center of mass with respect to the center of mass of the solar system. The vector r represents the instantaneous distance between the planet and the solar center of mass.  { ui }  is the basis of the equator J2000 reference frame (explained in text). The dashed blue lines represent the boundaries of the solar tachocline, which are assumed to be ellipsoids.
