Helioseismology has enabled us to probe the internal structure and dynamics of the Sun, including how its rotation varies in the solar interior. The unexpected discovery of an abrupt transition - the tachocline - between the differentially rotating convection zone and the uniformly rotating radiative interior has generated considerable interest and raised many fundamental issues. This volume contains invited reviews from distinguished speakers at the first meeting devoted to the tachocline, held at the Isaac Newton Institute. It provides a comprehensive account of the understanding of the properties and dynamics of the tachocline, including both observational results and major theoretical issues, involving both hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic behaviour. The Solar Tachocline is a valuable reference for researchers and graduate students in astrophysics, heliospheric physics and geophysics, and the dynamics of fluids and plasmas.

'Many of the challenging problems discussed will probably be with us for decades, so the book will become a valuable source, both for established workers and graduate students. It should certainly be in the library of every university with research schools in stellar astrophysics, geophysics, and in basic hydrodynamics and plasma physics.' The Observatory
'...the book will be the standard reference on the subject.' Geophysical and Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics
