Reports on advances in understanding of solar convection and activity, and on new methods and results of helioseismic diagnostics of the internal structures and dynamics of solar convection and active regions. Themes include theories of solar convection and rotation, helioseismic tomography, acoustic imaging and holography, ring-diagram analysis, magnetic fields and oscillations, and solar-cycle variations of internal structure and rotation. Of interest to graduate students and specialists in solar physics, astrophysics, and geophysics. Most chapters originated as papers at a July 1999 workshop held at Stanford University.
