[100.01] What Have We Learned About Solar Neutrinos?

John Bahcall (Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, NJ 08540)

The principal lessons learned from the first 30 years of solar neutrino research will be summarized. The results from the four operating solar neutrino experiments will be reviewed and compared with theoretical predictions based upon standard solar models and standard electroweak theory (zero neutrino masses, no flavor mixing). The implications of $p-$mode helioseismological measurements for the neutrino problems will be discussed. New solar neutrino experiments that are currently being constructed will be described.
