Notes. Differential rotation parameters are calculated separately for solar cycles Nos. 20–24, for the part of the data set using the interactive procedure (covering solar cycles Nos. 20–23) – int (all), and for the whole data set using the interactive and automatic procedure together (covering solar cycles Nos. 20–24) – int+aut (all). All results are calculated separately via the DS and rLSQ methods covering the whole Sun (i.e., both hemispheres together) – N+S, the northern hemisphere – N, and the southern hemisphere – S. All calculations are exposed to ±58 deg CMD filter and 8–19 deg/day velocity filter. The sidereal parameters and their standard errors are expressed in deg/day. Nvl is the number of calculated rotation velocities.
