The solar-stellar connection: Insights from helioseismology



In this review we discuss helioseismology as a probe of the solar activity cycle, highlighting in particular results on studies of the recent, unusual solar minimum. We then discuss the solar-stellar connection, in the context of the potential for performing asteroseismic studies of stellar activity cycles of solar-type stars using data from Kepler, CoRoT and groundbased observations.
