IMPACT OF THE TIDAL FORCE FROM THE PLANETS ON THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE CENTRAL STAR
Abstract:Gravitational influence of planetary systems on "stellar activity" (the brightness variations process) is considered. Expressions for the tidal forces affecting the stellar atmosphere are obtained taking into account the degree of freedom of the gravitating bodies. We show that periodicities in solar cycles may be related to the tidal forces from the big planes of the Solar System.
